Maybe I mean, under the generic heading of “Filmmaker”, do you think technology is allowing for a broader range of tasks to be undertaken by a single person to the extent that it might be slightly evolving notions of what should be encompassed under the title of other roles, such as Director or Editor?
In the indie low budget (read non-union) world, yes. In hollywood the classic:
"Hey grip, can you change that light bulb in the practical over there"
"Sounds like an electrivcal problem to me, well it is a practical, want me to have somebody get the art director?"
Still applies I think.
