I work on Hollywood sets, how can I stop seething with jealousy at how much these people are getting paid. It's affecting my job performance. I learned the Director was getting 20 mil + 15% of gross

Why don't you pick up a condo or a house?
You could cover the mortgage with that salary, and property taxes would be less than a third of what you're paying in rent.

user, there are extremely skilled programmers who make a third of your salary.

I don't even... Jesus Christ get your shit together. There are nice living in LA off of goddamned welfare and minimum wage. Just grow a sack and move to a shitter area in LA and don't flaunt your money. you could save 200K a YEAR. And don't give me any shit about getting mugged or stabbed cause I lived on 80th and central and didn't get any shit. Jesus fuck, you yuppies piss me off.

So OP makes more than the average doctor and all he does is set up lights, and he is jealous that he doesn't make 20+ million. I can't help but feel like this is either bait or he is simply trying to low-key brag about his job.

the guy who's responsibility is putting in light bulbs, complaining about how much people get paid when they're responsible for hundreds of millions of dollars of other peoples money, that can be flushed down the shitter if they do something wrong

Yes it fucking is actually.

Do you know how much a day of shooting costs? Millions of dollars.

If you fuck up you could kill someone or completely ruin a day of shooting. Which costs a lot of money.

@TalkBomber
you may be trolling but I'm not surprised you feel this way. people dont make that much money without really being concerned with money. do you think the director is shitty? do you think he works hard enough to earn what he actually earns? I bet lots of people on hollywood can do your job. but not everyone can be a director. imagine if you said "I want to be a director one day." its like saying "I want to be taylor swift." its a ridiculous gamble and you could lose your life pursuing that career. If your director made it this far he probably went through absolute hell.

Office Production Assistants gets about $500-$600 a week doing any where from 10-14 hours each day.

Rent in LA is retarded so expect to pay between $1,200 to $1,400 for a non-ghetto room to yourself or around $700-$1200 in the valley if you're in a 2-3 bedroom apartment.

I usually spend like $500 a month on groceries and restaurants and shit. The only good thing about production life is free lunches/dinners.

LA sucks and so does the ent industry, dont come here for money... Your job is only temp, and its hard to get another one after the season ends.
