The Hypothetical Blockbuster Budget

This video from Vanity Fair (wait, that can't be right.... ok, it's really from Vanity Fair. I didn't know that was a thing that could happen) shows roughly how much money everyone that has worked on a $200 million blockbuster would make. I can't believe the cat made like 10 times what the intimidating bouncer at the nightclub made. That's probably racist.

Basically what I learned from this is that there's good money to be made being like a Key Grip, or a makeup artist. Sure you have to live with the nightmare that is not knowing when your next job will be but it beats digging ditches for a living. Unless you're the lead ditch digger for a movie, I hear those guys make bank.

Yeah, I saw that via the Gawker, pretty intersting. My question was what time frame is it based on? What's good money for a 12 month schedule might not be for 18 months. Not to mention the total hours per day and being on location (e.g. Moroccan desert).

According to a quick google search the average movie takes 45-60 days to shoot, with 8 to 12 weeks of prep time and 10-20 weeks of post production. I guess the amount of hours you have to spend depend on how much of that you're actually involved in.
