Vanity Fair: How Much a Film Crew of a $200 Million Blockbuster Earns

The authors gathered data about the average income of professionals who work on high budget movies: from a director and an executive producer to electricians, cameraman assistants, and extras.

Vanity Fair magazine published a 4-minute video with the information about the salaries of different members of the film crew working on a typical Hollywood blockbuster. The authors analyzed the data about the income of professionals who created movies with budgets over $200 million.
