A Movie/TV Camera operator's Life

What camera operators get to do as a camera opertor

Well... What do you do on the Job?

My job seems simple, but really its no easy task. We must be able to add technical aspects when filming the video and assemble equipment for 12 or 14 hours a day! Also, sometimes we have to travel to forgein countries and stay there for a long period of time, usually up to a year. All of this pays off, though. My average wage is $42,940 per year!

Are there any physical demands?

Not really. The only physical demands are carrying thing up to 20 pounds and standing two-

thirds of the time
