Gaffer

AKA: Chief Lighting TechnicianThe head of the electrical department, responsible for the design and execution of the lighting plan for a production. Early films used mostly natural light, which stagehands controlled with large tent cloths using long poles called gaffs (stagehands were often beached sailors or longshoremen, and a gaff is a type of boom on a sailing ship). In 16th Century English, the term gaffer denoted a man who was the head of any organized group of laborers.
