That’s dependent on a lot of different factors, but here’s a rough guide –
DEVELOPMENT – for developing projects and new talent. Personnel include development executives, script editors and script readers
PRODUCTION – covering production requirements of shooting jobs. Personnel include production assistants/ coordinators, office manager/hr, runners, producer’s assistants
BUSINESS & FINANCE – for funding applications, legal matters and accounts department. Personnel include financing executives, lawyers, accountants
DISTRIBUTION – some film production companies may have their own distribution section for distributing and marketing their films
