    In this section, since we are dealing with actual professions, we are going to take a different approach. Now that you know the different building blocks of a movie, you may wonder how to put them all together.

    We are going to take a look at different production areas by putting you in those positions. You are the director; you are the director and cinematographer; you are the director and editor; and you are the director and sound technician.

    We will go through different terminology for each of the areas. Then we will take a look at how they apply in different examples of the three movies you watched and with a hypothetical example. The more knowledge you have, the better appreciation and the better decisions you can make in situations given in the assignments.
