Making a film can seem daunting. After you have a screen play and you've done your pre-production, you still have to film the thing, and you're gonna need help. Orson Welles once said, "A writer needs a pen, an artist needs a brush, but a filmmaker needs an army." But he also co-wrote, produced, directed and starred in Citizen Kane.
So which is it? Do you need hundreds of people or couple disciplined artists doing everything? Well, it depends on your movie. Every successful film production has the same kind of jobs, but the scale can vary a lot. Every story has different needs. And maybe the best place to start sizing up the needs of your project is in the inner working of a film set, where the actual filming takes place.
And then, of course, there are the people. The crew that work on and off the set during principal photography, when most of the movie is being filmed.
