Comparing Stage and Screen
Jo Wickham It can be a common misconception that all forms of acting are the same, if you are good at one then it must follow that you are good at another. This is not necessarily the case and is particularly true for the two disciplines of stage and screen acting.

Looking back at a typical day working on Top of the Pops
Graham Reed A few weeks ago I was watching television and caught a bit of 'Top of the Pops ' from 1984, and I thought, 'Was this one of the programmes I worked on? ' I was privileged enough to be a staff cameraman at the BBC for 20 years, during that time I was able to work on many great shows: Only Fools and Horses, Blue Peter and Two Ronnies to name but a few.

Peter Leverick Whilst it might be argued that may be the only difference between LDs & DOPs, the same is not entirely true for Videographers & Broadcast Cameramen. That is not to say that Videographers are necessarily inferior to Broadcast Cameramen but certainly different.

Lenses cant be that complicated can they? Part 1
Graham Reed Many people who use lenses have very little understanding in the complexity or the science that goes on behind them. I do not pretend to be an expert on optics but I have spent some time in trying to understand just how complex they are.

Is working for free, training or a pathway to paid work?
Graham Reed I suspect like a lot of KitPlus readers I often have a look at a websites that advertise jobs, but mainly un-paid. I have frequently thought that these job offers are really just trying to get free or cheap labour for the benefit of the director/producer.
