DescriptionSalary: $28,001 to $50,000 per year
: Camera operators work behind the scenes on TV shows, documentaries, motion pictures, and industrial films. They shoot the film you see on screen, sometimes from high up on scaffolding or flat on their bellies on the ground. They may work long, irregular hours in places all over the world. Film editors look at the hundreds of hours worth of film shot for a project and decide which scenes to include and which to cut.
