Regular Cast & Crew
Satyajit Ray began with a group of artists and technicians who were largely newcomers to film. Through out his long career of about 37 years and 36 films, his crew changed a little. He had the same editor for all his films, just three cinematographers, and two art directors.

The crew was under no permanent contract or organisation. And yet, the crew members and actors always made themselves available for his films. It was partly due to this obligation that Ray moved from one film to another rapidly, making about one film a year.

His son Sandip Ray gradually became his most valued assistant. "The best assistant I ever had", Ray told an interviewer.
