연기자
[yeon gi ja]

연기자 is combined 2 words by 연기(act), 자(suffix that means person).
Gender doesn’t matter for words in Korean.
연기자 is also called ‘배우’ usually. Both aren’t different much but 연기자 sounds more formal.

감독
[gam dok]

감독 means a supervisor for mostly field works, safety, a sport team manager, movie or play. But, a manager in a workplace is called ‘관리자’ often. So you think ‘감독’ always means manager

촬영하다
[chwal yeong]

촬영 is a formal Korean verb that means recording something with a camera for pictures and videos.
촬영 is a noun for 촬영하다. It seems not much different than your language right? But it has a big big biiiiiiig difference when it’s used in a phrase. Koreans say ‘촬영에 들어가다(enter into recording)’ for saying ‘start to record’.

저는 치킨 300개 먹는거 촬영할거예요
I will record myself eating 300 fried chicken buckets.

찍다
[jjik da]

찍다 is an informal word for recording (like shooting) 찍다 actually is an action that move an object down very quickly. (chop, spear, stamp, dip)
If you record something on your TV. Then, 녹화 is more correct than 촬영 or 찍다

사진 찍는 거 좋아해요
