What is a “First Assistant Camera”?

This crew member, (AKA first AC, or focus puller) is responsible for making sure that the camera stays in focus through out the duration of the shot. Often times the depth of field changes, or the object that is being shot changes position and it is the job of the first AC to make sure the focus is adjusted properly when these changes happen.
