This person is also known as the DP, or the head cinematographer. It has been argued that, besides the director, the DP is the most important person on a set when it comes to the visual aspect of the film. The DP has to make sure that the scene is lit properly, the right lenses are being used and scene is framed correctly. DP’s have been said to “paint with light”. It is also the DP’s responsibility to make sure that the movement of the camera and the change in focus is executed properly while shooting a scene.
