I think it would depend on what medium you were shooting in,your budget demands and the scope of the film you're making... if working with DSLR or M4/3 filmmaking, in theory you could have a great script, carefully planned out and storyboarded scenes, a small group of decent actors, well-chosen sets and well-placed lighting....and you could pull it off with two people, one behind the camera and one on the boom pole. Those two guys are going to have to have a basic knowledge in everything from lighting, sound, camera operation and editing. There is a good podcast on itunes (for free). Its Ed Burns talking about the Newleyweds and how he got back to basics with a very small crew, everyone took on more than one job on the set. Its called The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith..pretty inspiring if you're a low-budget filmmaker.

Locations Manager - You can't shoot if you don't have a place to shoot

Director

Cameraman

Sound Mixer/Boom Operator

Production Designer


IF made to choose only five, those would be mine. However, it is important to understand that even if you just have a five person crew, ALL of the other jobs still need to be done even if there aren't specialists to do them. Those five above would be wearing MANY hats which would likely impact productivity and quality.

There is really no such thing as an "unskilled" person on a film set. Some may say "Production Assistant" but even they must know the mechanics of how a professional production day runs and the "set etiquette" required.

I suggest the book, "What I Really Want to Do: On Set in Hollywood" which will explain every job ON SET, what they all do and what it takes for them to get there.

I'm gonna leave Director out as he runs the show and as such would not be considered "personnel" in my opinion. I'm also going to list this as a NO budget production which is I think what you're actually asking, IE "What is that absolute minimum of professionals I'll need to make a movie that looks like it was professionally made?"

1 Cameraman/cinematographer
2 Soundman/boom operator
3 Key grip lighting/electric
4 Set dresser/Propman
5 Hair/makeup/costumer may also handle continuity.

This would be a single passenger van, small cast, simple character driven story, everyone using their own equipment and interdepartmental labor overlapped shoestring production like Faster Pussycat Kill, Kill, Napoleon Dynamite or Clerks.

You are finished before you even start with these lists. Add "AC" and "AD" to essential people, for starters. A feature production, where a schedule and quality matter, needs what it needs.

I agree with this, you can throw a lot of quality away immediately without the right nuts and bolts.

Unless you're doing absolute Robert Rodriguez stuff and it's rare enough that it has any discernible quality with that type of filmmaking or blows up anything to the state of what he did, but crew's very important. Just compare Mariachi to Desperado in overall quality, essentially very close material, but completely different levels of professionalism.
