Food Stylist and Home Economist?

Once and for all:  Do these job titles belong in Additional Crew or Art Department?  I keep finding them in either/or/and of these departments.

Thanks for your message.

 

This highly depends on where exactly these credits appear in their on-screen listing. If they are bundled with other art department credit then they should be added there. If they are not then they need to be listed in the additional crew department.

 

If you have a specific example, we will happily provide further guidance.

This came into my purview when auditing the credits on The King of Staten Island (2020). There are "(uncredited)" "food styling" cedits listed in the Art Department which are not based on on-screen credits.

It logically seems that the "food stylist," "home economist," etc. credits should be consolidated.  The best place for these would seem to be the Additional Crew section since they involve consumables.  I am, of course, thinking that props are not usually eaten, although some may feel that (when evaluating a title in a review) can be the case with "chewing the scenery."
