Assistant Directors - ensuring good communication on set between departments, working with cast and supporting artists
Production Office - providing logistical support by organising travel/accommodation, generating and distributing paperwork
Locations - making sure the location or studio is ready to shoot and maintained throughout the shoot day, and new locations prepared
Art department - offering support with props and set work.
Post-Production - dealing with audio and visual files, injest, and rushes running.
