The writer believed that the cinematography community of UMM often use the special term of language that were only understood among them. Therefore, the writer was interested in finding the register and knowing the meaning of those register used. The writer applied a descriptive qualitative research design to describe and interpret the register used by the cinematography community. To collect the data, the writer used interview, documentation and observation. In this study, interview was the primary instrument to get the data. In the interview, the writer got much information about the history of “Kine Club” and some cinematography registers from three informants. In the documentation, the writer read special reference always used by the community and by using it, the writer got a lot of cinematography registers needed. This reference helped the writer to verify the fixed meaning of each register not mentioned or explained clearly by the informants.

To analyze the data, the writer applied several steps as follows: 1) identified, classified and analyzed the data of the cinematography registers, 2) showed the cinematography registers with that meaning, 3) arranged the data in the form of table, 4) drew conclusion based on the data.
