Question by Tyler: What is the difference between a Cinematographer and a Camera Operator?
Alright so I got into Columbia College Hollywood for TV/Film and I want to be a camera operator for a BIG TV production studio and to film TV shows such as Glee, Meet The Browns, The Ellen DeGeneres show and Brothers & Sisters etc. The college I got accepted has degrees such as Directing, Producing, Cinematography & Editing
The school also has classes like Introduction to TV Production etc
So does it matter if I pick a major in Cinematography if I just want to be a camera operator for Television?
