The film, entertainment, and media industries are massive, and inclusive of many different types of jobs and skill sets. The best known creative roles are the director, cinematographer, screenwriter, and editor, but the field is also home to many producers, production coordinators, commercial advertisers, broadcast journalists, marketers, video engineers, communications and digital media experts who are more interested in other aspects of the industry or who want to work in sister industries. In this visual age the filmmaker and visual communicator's role is as important as it has ever been, and film and video experts are even hired now in many companies, non-profit organizations, and institutions across unrelated sectors.
