Behind the scenes: The fun of being a Gaffer

Definition - a Gaffer in the motion picture industry and on a television crew is the head electrician, responsible for the execution (and sometimes the design) of the lighting plan for a production.

The Gaffer is responsible for managing lighting, including associated resources such as labour, lighting instruments and electrical equipment under the direction of the Director of Photography (the DP or DOP). Well, I cannot agree with that staement , and I just want to say that there is also a room for fun, friends, learning new skills and visiting some exciting places of the world.

I love my job and I'm proud to be called the Gaffer.
