Credit list/Production roles



We were all wondering what our specific roles were. We generally know the main job titles are, but on this project there are so many divisions and subdivisions, one was starting to get a little confused. I found this on the BBC website Im pretty sure it lists all roles, if not, Im sure it will be sufficiently detailed for this project.

Since glancing over it things have become more clear. I have made the font bold and put names next to relevant roles. Above is an image of how things run on ITV.

[Name of supplier or name of individual, not both]
Producers may only credit facilities, such as post-production houses, if this represents an outstanding creative contribution. Such credits may include the name(s) of the individuals(s) or the name of the organisation, but not both. Credits cannot be given in exchange or waived or a reduced fee, or for any other benefit or advantage. The supply of basic facilities, e.g. studios does not merit a credit.
Journalism Correspondent
Locations Filmed at/in [e.g. name of property, town] (my road, my college)
[If a producer judges that it would be of interest to the audience to know the name of a location used in a programme, and it is not apparent within the programme itself., it may be identified in end credits. Such references cannot be given in exchange for a waived or a reduced facility fee, or for any other benefit or advantage. Where a location is given, the name must appear in the same style as the rest of the credit sequence. Location owners’ names, logos or house colours cannot be used.]
