A combination of two and three-dimensional images in an animation.

20k Lights

20 Kilowatt lights used in filming. K refers to the Kelvin scale or temperature of the light. The higher the K the bluer the light looks. The lower the kelvin, the more “yellow” it is. Lower kelvins also tend to have a higher “PAR” rating.


Two-dimensional animation refers to the images sitting flat on the screen.

2nd Assistant Camera (2nd AC)

This person supports the First AC. They keep track of the lenses, the Magazines (memory cards – we still call them magazines). They Slate the scenes (operate the Slate onset) and keep camera reports. See Slate and Audio Recordist.
