Person responsible for setting up and orchestrating light settings during a show. You know, who to shine a light on at specific lines/times.
Fact, these people usually know more about the ins and outs of the show/movie/theater-set than anyone else, except maybe director/producer. They are obligated to know most of the script, synchronize timing intervals, have a deep knowledge about photography and have to work close with stylists as well, in order to make shots appear good and bright. Oh, and they make minimum wage.
