What do movie people do?

So you're looking for a gig working on a low budget movie. The ad looks pretty exciting. But what do those words actually mean?

The LA Grind has the (true) answer. For example:
Assistant Director
Implied Position & Responsibilities: Create schedules, keep crew and director on schedule for the day, contacting late crew members, sending out tomorrow’s schedule.
Actual Low Budget Requirements/Expectations: Assist the director by getting coffee, dry cleaning, picking up food for the rest of the crew.
Stop banging your head on the desk, Johnnie. It is funny.

It's funny 'cos it's true.
