They are expected to be in charge of learning and rehearsing the routine before the performance.*Choreographer* They create the routine that the dancer performs, keeping in mind the timing of the routine and dancers, the dynamics of each movement etc, and also guide the dancers through learning and rehearsing the dance.*Costume Designer* The costume designer has to create and produce the costumes worn by the dancers in performances, as well as being responsible of keeping track of the budgeting of the outfits to make sure they dont overspend. *Dance therapist* A dance therapist attempts to relieve stress for, and promote self esteem in their patients , in order to correct a number of physical and emotional ailments. They use dance as a tool to heal both the mind and the body as dance therapy relies on the belief that state of mind can affect overall health. *Hairand Make up Stylist* A hair stylist shampoos, cuts, colours and styles the hair for performers before their performance. He or she may educate clients about hair and scalp care, remove unwanted hair or dress a wig. Some stylists even do nails and skin care. Performing Arts - Dance 3. Performing Arts - Music *Composer*Someone who creates music and tracks from scratch, or someone who instructs others in the way they play their instruments etc. They write a piece of music for theatre, TV, radio, film, computer games and other areas where music is needed. *DJ* A DJ is selects a range of tracks that mix nicely together in order to create a mix, for a party or disco. They blend songs together in order to create a suite of music in which the audience is unaware of the transitions between tracks. Not only does this keep a dance floor energy on a constant flow, it can also sound very good when elements between two songs interact. *Music video director* *Public Relations* They talk to journalists about putting in adverts in news papers, radio,televisions, magazines, billboards , internet etc to promote the song, album, music video,, musician, or singer/band, through the fastest way possible, using the media. *Video set designer* Set designers in any line of work, be it films, music videos, or plays, look at a picture or sketch of the set, design it from scratch to use as a guide when building the set, and use every way possible to create it. They have to gather all the equipment and materials before hand by themselves e.g. All thewood, paint, metal, paintbrushes etc needed to make the props. But they also need to look at the budget they are given and plan the set building out carefully to avoid overspending.. Lastly they have to be creative and inventivewith what they have, even if its only scraps, lots of money isnt needed. Money cant buy dreams. They are driven by a given music track, to create a concept and main focus for the video and direct it, as well as instructing the actors, musicians etc in the video in what ever they do.They also decide what camera shots should be used where and the style the video is shot etc. They are in charge of everything. 4. Performing Arts - Drama *Production Manager* They manage the building of the set, the cost of the transport , the production budget, the costs and times of using the rehearsal room, dealing with the stage managers overtime and keeping an eye on the costume designcosts and duration. *Dramaturge* A dramaturge is in charge of selecting what is relevant, from the irrelevant information in the script, and deciding which parts of the play script should be cut out, whats most important etc. They also proofread the script before the actors start rehearsing with it.*Play script writer* This person plans, writes and rewrites the script for the play from scratch, until it meets the directors standards, needs and wants. The play script is later sent down to the actors, to memorise, rehearse and eventually perform on stage. *Producer* This is a key role, they listen to the directors ideas and see how these ideas can happen and develop them. They look after the whole budget and use it carefully, adding up the costs, wages etc, as well as juggling different costs on top of others. A producer helps the director when in need and forms a partnership with them, later helping to make important decisions. They also need to find ways of getting hold of extra money if needed from loans, sponsors etc. Sometimes they even have to have a big creative input , naming the play etc. They need to have a sense of what appeals to various audiences and deal with marketing and press e.g. Posting trailers on websites etc. *Play Director* The director isthekey role, in my opinion as without him you cant put the play together, everything would be a mess. He leads the creative team, choreographer, vocal therapist etc. He needs to have an understanding and think about what they want the audience to experience, what appeals to the audience , what kind of actors and stageyoure going to pick, and who youll need to recruit . On top of all that, you need to lead the rehearsals and direct and instruct what the producer needs to do,how to promote it, how the actors move, the lighting and music set in each seen, what costumes need to be made and where to get them from, what props need to be made, how the set should be designed and most importantly, how todo all that, and stay within the budget set. 5. Media - Television *Actors* The work an actor does depends on what type of play/film it is. If its a drama, your main aim is to memorise, rehearse and perform the your lines in the script.. If youre acting in a musical, you have to be able to sing, act and occasionally dance.In a comedy, you have to learn the dialogue as your main objective is to deliver the story behind the script to the audience. You may also need to sing a little in comedies, but not as much as youd have to in a musical. He needs to become the character of the role hes been given and make the play or drama seem so real, that the audience get pulled into their world. *Cameraman* A camera man is a very busy person, they have a lot to do, and not much time to do it. This is why many camera men such as Robert Singer, who directs and producesmany fantastic, jaw-dropping Supernatural episodes, uses the 16 shot. This saves time, as you then have many different shots, at different angles, so you can pick your best shots from those. They need to be able to understand the directors ideas clearly and be able to portray it in the right way, and find a way to achieve what the director asks them to do. They use various camera shots, lighting and angles to attract the audiences attention. *Dialect Coach* They assist an actor in assuming a certain regional accent in order to perform convincingly in radio, theatrical or film productions. Dialect coaches are skilled in diction and linguistics, and dont necessarily have to have the accent that theyre teaching. *Video editor* An editor gets given all the footage shots filmed during the filming and carves it into the story the director wants to show, by cutting and taking out the deleted scenes and unusable parts. They chop away any unwanted portionsand mix the audio from audio tracks with background music etc. They also can add effect to blend in, overlay or fade out etc as the video flows through its sequence. 6. Media - Radio *Audio Technician* They are responsible for ensuring that the sound recording is of the highest quality possible. Their primary role is to set up and operate recording equipment, in advance of the performers arrival and must be available for sound checks, adjusting the settings and equipment required. They are also responsible for finding and winning new jobs or business, its important to make business connections with club and venue managers, as they are responsible for contacting the audio technician. Finding new clients is a vital part of the job, this can be achieved through targeted advertising and building important business relationships, this helps provide new information and contacts regarding new jobs and other potential business opportunities. *station manager* The radio station manager has the responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the station including managing the various departments, scheduling on and off air staff, dealing with promotions and other advertising issues as well as ensuring that the station follows are regulations and guidelines. The station manager is also the liaison between the station owners and the employees and works to make sure that all employees are following the goals of the owners with regards to the type of station and level of professionalism. *Radio journalist* Radio and television journalists gather and present news, including information about current and historical events, things that have changed in the world and other topics of interest such as music, films, food, animes, mangas, k-pop, J-pop and T-pop stars etc. *Broadcast Assistant* They give practical support to programme producers and presenters and ensure that shows run as smoothly as possible by managing a range of activities in a busy environment. They plan, research and produce live and pre-recorded radio programmes. 7. Media - Film *Casting Director* They are a link between the director and the producers of a movie or a television project. Their job is considered one of the busiest jobs around. They have to literally go through thousands of portfolios every day and keep taking interviews.
