You know what they say about movies: It's not over until you've seen every name that has, in one way or another, lent a hand to its making. The hero rides off into the sunset, and the end credits roll—a massive list of names written in white, rolling across a black background. From the director to the lead actors all the way to people making coffee for everyone in the set, movies know how to give credit where it is due.
But how much is each person worth? The directors and the big actors, you already know they're worth millions of dollars (we're talking Hollywood blockbusters here) but how about the smaller players, the multitude of hands crafting the final product? A video by Vanity Fair has the answer. Mimicking how end credits roll, the video swaps the names (the Spielbergs, the Pitts, the Jolies) for actual dollar figures allotted to each person in the filmmaking process.
Did you know that writers can apparently earn as much as $3.25 million? Man, let's all stop blogging and write incredible stories. Even more shocking: Cats can earn as much $13,000 for a role in big movies. So, seriously, what the hell are we doing with our lives right now? Get a cat off the street, train it, and fly to Hollywood, bro.
