The work of sight effects specialist has to combine both artistic qualities and the ability to understand artistic requirements of a performance or of the producing personnel, with technical abilities of using lighting and wiring equipment and obtain desired effects by assigning special duties to the electrical crew. The resume should therefore be specific about the technical abilities together with the ability of artistic comprehension. It should mention the ability to operate equipment such as stereopticon lens, lamps, electrical equipment in order to obtain special mobile or stationary effects on stage.
