Glossary
ACTT Association of Cinematograph and Television Technicians. The trade union representing employees in film and television before amalgamation with the broadcast and theatre unions (see BECTU below).
AFM Assistant Floor Manager. The junior person in the production crew who assists the stage/floor manager with such jobs as looking after the actors, checking the props and co-ordinating rehearsals and studio production (see Floor manager under Work areas in the television industry, p. 36)
ambient noise The background sound inherent to a location such as traffic noise or air conditioning.
analogue A form of representation, such as a painting, a chemical photograph or a video tape, in which the image is composed of a continuous variation of tone, light or some other signal, in contrast to digital representation, in which the signal is broken down into discrete elements. For example, the hands of a traditional (analogue) clock continuously sweep its face, whereas a digital clock announces each second in isolation.
analytic editing Editing in which the sequence of images is constructed to follow an argument rather than a narrative.
animation A style of filming that creates movement from inanimate objects, whether they be sequences of drawings—as with a Disney film—plasticine puppets or merely moving diagrams. Usually achieved by exposing the film or videotape a few frames at a time and moving the drawings or models between exposures. Increasingly animation is done digitally with computer-generated images.
animatronics Electronically and mechanically controlled puppets, models and prosthetics.
aperture Adjusting the aperture of a lens means enlarging or reducing the size of the hole at its centre formed by the surrounding iris, hence altering the exposure. The size is measured in f-stops. A large aperture (f-2) admits more light but reduces the depth of field; a small aperture (f-16) admits less light but gives a greatly increased depth of field. A lens may be ‘opened up’ or ‘stopped down’.
