A cinematographer is also known as a Director of Photography. The cinematographer is the head of the camera department, and directs the camera operators on how to get the desired look of each scene. They choose what the best camera angles, placement and movement will be to effectively tell your story. Generally, on larger projects, the cinematographer usually does not physically handle the camera equipment, but on smaller video shoots, they may be the camera operator as well.
CINEMATOGRAPHERS ROLE IN PRODUCTION
The cinematographer works closely with the director and the producer and contributes technically throughout the entire process of the video production. Generally, the cinematographer will have more technical knowledge than the director, and can assist in determining what kind of look and feel is realistically achievable for the video, given any restraints on time, budget and equipment available for the shoot.
The cinematographer will also help ensure visual consistency throughout the entire filming process.
