Supervising Gaffer vs. Gaffer (No replies)

Hello guys,

I just re-read the december issue of AC (with the Blade Runner 2049 article) and I was wondered by the work breakdown and especially the crew on set.

What is the difference between a gaffer and the supervising gaffer?

For me as an austrian cinematographer the gaffer is always supervising the light and grip-team, so I wondered why the hungarian Gaffer wasn't supervising and had Bill O’Leary as a supervising gaffer above him.

It would be great to find out how they both worked together for this amazing film and whom of them was in charge of what's happening on set.
