Unit 3: The Creative Media Sector
Key Roles Within The Film Industry
The Director is the person who directs the making of the film. They are responsible for converting a script into visual images and sounds on screen, and their duties include casting, script editing, shot composition, shot selection and editing. They also manage the technical aspects of filming, including the camera, sound, lighting, design and special effects departments. Some Directors also take the role of producers and often write the script themselves. They must also always be constantly aware of the film's budget and schedule.
The Producer
The Producer prepares and then supervises the making of a film and they are often the first person to become involved in a project, even before the writer. They are also responsible for presenting the product to a film distributor.
Film Distributors
Distributors must inform the widest possible audience about the films they release. Distributors work and talk with a variety of professionals, including filmmakers and producers, film sales agents, advertising agencies, and graphic artists to sell the film to the media.
Camera Operator
Camera Operators perform a vital role within the camera department on feature films. They support the Director of Photography and the Director, by accurately carrying out their instructions on shot composition and development. Camera Operators usually begin work at the end of pre-production and have the overall decision on where to position the camera, and what lenses and supporting equipment to use.
Screenwriters are responsible for researching the story, developing the narrative, writing the screenplay, and delivering it to Development Executives. Screenwriters must produce highly creative writing to deadlines, and they need to work well with other members of the script development team to create a product that is likely to be financed and made.

In order to protect children from unsuitable and even harmful content in films and videos, the BBFC examines and age rates films and videos before they are released. Films for theatrical release are normally classified by at least two Examiners using the published Guidelines. Examiners look at issues such as discrimination, drugs, horror, language, nudity, sex, sexual violence, theme and violence when making decisions. They also consider context and the tone and impact of it (how it makes the audience feel).

Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. Entertainment was founded in 1923 by 4 brothers: Sam Warner, Albert Warner, Harry Warner and Jack Warner. The three elder brothers began in the movie business, after getting a movie projector with which they showed films in the towns of Pennsylvania and Ohio, and they opened their first theater in New Castle, Pennsylvania in 1903. A year later in 1904, the brothers founded an Amusement & Supply Company to distribute films. In 1918 the brothers opened the Warner Bros. studio in Hollywood. Sam and Jack Warner produced the pictures, while Harry and Albert Warner handled finance and distribution. My Four Years in Germany was the title of their first film, based on a popular book by James W. Gerard.

Key Jobs...
Radio Presenter
Radio Presenters are the voice of a station or program, whether they work in speech-based or music Radio. They may also be required to carry out a range of other production tasks, as well as deliver content for related websites or other mobile platforms.

Radio Presenters' specific responsibilities differ considerably depending on the programme or station. The majority of Radio Presenters are part of a small team, although some work with much larger programme units. They are mainly based in offices and recording studios, but may also work on location presenting outside broadcasts.
The focus of the Reporter's role in Radio is to find and tell the stories that make up the news or current affairs output for the station or organisation for which they work. Reporters may work for a variety of different outlets, ranging from single local radio stations to international news organisations - and their related websites. They may be part of a small local team, or based in a regional or national newsroom, or in a foreign bureau. Some Reporters may also work from home, utilising broadband and other technology to supply material to broadcasters or other employers.
Radio Traffic Manager...
Radio Traffic Managers in Commercial Radio are responsible for scheduling advertising and promotions in line with the business strategy of a radio station or group of stations, in order to ensure effectiveness and maximise revenue.

Radio Traffic Managers may work for a single station, or as part of a larger regional or national department serving a number of stations or radio brands. The role is largely office based, and there are Traffic Departments in radio stations throughout the UK. The specific responsibilities of Traffic Managers and the size of the team they manage, depends on the station or stations for which they are responsible.
Radio Producer...
Radio producers are responsible for the audio content of broadcasts via radio, the internet and other mobile platforms. They are involved in the entire process, from generating ideas to managing the audience response after a program. Producers manage and work with broadcasting assistants, presenters and DJs, engineers and IT staff. They may also be responsible for the business and commercial management of a program. Producers can work in the publicly funded, commercial or voluntary sectors of broadcasting. Wherever they work, they are part of a digital revolution which is having a profound impact on the way in which radio is produced and accessed.

Heat is a British magazine published by the German company 'Bauer Media Group.'

The History
Heat was launched in February 1999 as a general interest entertainment magazine, at a cost of more than £4m. It was not an immediate success, but after multiple changes, Heat became a less serious, more gossip-oriented magazine aimed at women, and it became more popular. Barry McIlheney was Heat's first editor, but was replaced in 2000 by Mark Frith who edited until 2008. Julian Linley then took over as editor until 2009, followed by Sam Delaney who edited till 2010. The next editor was Lucie Cave who stayed on until 2012 when she was replaced by Jeremy Mark, the current Heat Editor.

Covers Of Heat...
In an issue which was released on 27 November 2007, Heat used a photograph of Katie Price's disabled son, who suffers from septo-optic dysplasia. The rare condition makes him partially blind and means that he suffers from hormonal deficiencies, causing him to easily gain weight. His photograph was used on a sticker with the slogan "Harvey wants to eat me!" A spokesperson for the Press Complaints Commission confirmed that Katie Price was planning to make a complaint about the matter. The magazine was also criticized in the press over the incident, with one editorial describing it as "the lowest point in British journalism". The magazine's editor at the time, Mark Frith made an apology for the offence caused by the sticker and an apology was also posted on the magazine's website.

The role of the Designer is to create the 'look and feel' of an interactive media product. What this actually involves can vary, depending on the size of team the Designer is part of, or the type of company they are working for.

The role often overlaps with the producer, especially in more senior positions, or where the Designer is working alone or in a very small team.

The Designer must combine creativity with an awareness of the tools and technologies that will be used to build the product, and an understanding of what these can and cannot do.

Account Manager...
The role of the Developer is to create an interactive media product. Sometimes this will be according to designs created by someone else (such as a Designer), but other times the Developer may design the product as well. The role generally overlaps with the Designer and Programmer, although the actual amount of design work involved may vary depending on things like the type or size of the organisation the Developer is working for.

Producers are responsible for identifying and specifying an interactive media product’s high-level requirements or purpose, and ensuring that its business objectives and creative vision are understood and maintained by everyone involved in the project. This is a senior, client-facing role that requires combinations of expertise in business, management, content, design and technical disciplines. It has a close relationship with the Project Manager role, but focuses on the project’s creative requirements rather than the mechanics of running it. The two roles are often combined, however. The Producer role also frequently overlaps with that of Information Architect. Interactive media companies usually prefer to keep the Producer role in-house, so this tends to be a permanently employed position. However, there is a shortage of experienced Producers, so freelance and contract opportunities are still available.

The role of the Account Manager is to develop, maintain and improve relationships with existing clients, ensuring their needs are met, and obtaining repeat business from them. He or she will usually work closely with Project Managers and Producers, and may report to senior company managers. The role often overlaps, or may be combined, with that of New Business Developer. Account Managers are almost always employed in permanent, rather than freelance, positions.

YouTube was founded by Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim, who were all early employees of PayPal. Hurley and Chen developed the idea for YouTube during the early months of 2005, after they had experienced difficulty sharing videos that had been shot at a dinner party. YouTube began as a funded startup from a $11.5 million investment by Sequoia Capital between November 2005 and April 2006. YouTube's early headquarters were situated above a pizzeria and Japanese restaurant in San Mateo, California. The domain name 'www.youtube.com' was activated on February 14, 2005, and the website was developed over the next few months, with the first YouTube video being entitled Me at the zoo, and shows co-founder Jawed Karim at the San Diego Zoo. The video was uploaded on April 23, 2005, and can still be viewed on the site.
