Whenever we listen to a music on the record or r / c we say he/she is good or not good. We don't think of all other people who are in charge of using the music to us. The backing up music is merely as critical as the vocal but the singer is the one acquiring the compliment - none for the session musician who works the great instrumental rest

The people that write the song are often not on the palpeur. A few years backside a songwriter's name would be in small printing in brackets. Usually it was only the writer's surname that would be printed. It seems everyone who has given their talents to ensure a great result is overlooked, apart from the vocalist. It's as though the artist is credited with everything, so far as his/ hers adoring public are worried.

It is the same in movies. Everyone looks to film production company stars. All the other people which may have worked hard to make the famous actors believable in their part are forgotten. The vocalists, the movie stars are the ones that find the admiration even though without others, their abilities couldn't come to fruition.

Once we see a film that requires stunts, we may know it's a stunt man that really does the dangerous stuff but he doesn't get a second thought. Nobody would like to know who he's. It is the superstar that is the leading man of the film. Videos require input from hundreds of men and women and without them the celebs acting skills wouldn't be viewed. But to the general public it is the singers and film stars that make an impression and the rest are definitely more or less forgotten.

Nevertheless , to some extent other people's talent is on show. For example, we now have documentaries that show what sort of film is made and sometimes the job of others is shown. The emphasis is still on the actors and camera crews and stop people get a short refer to. Years ago in the record industry the name of the record packaging would stand out, at present the label is in small print and the artists in large. Upon some albums the value of the engineer is recognized, stating their name and sometimes what equipment was involved. Many many people give their talents to ensure that a film, a live stage show, pop concert, recording treatment goes the best way as they possibly can get it. Unfortunately there is merely a few that get all the credit.

David A Ellis has written for a quantity of newspapers and journals and is the creator of two books on cinematographers.
