I will like to knw the 5 key personnel that needed to be professional when shooting a movie(Expect from the Producer),and other area in which unskilled personnel can work
Locations Manager - You can't shoot if you don't have a place to shoot
Sound Mixer/Boom Operator
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.

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.

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