Question by whitefire: How much do people make in the film industry?
I really have wanted to be a film maker for years now. I know how to edit videos, ive been doing it for about 2 years or more now, but I want film and edit films, and make them too. I want to major in film making. I am kind of worried about how I am going to get paid. If I could support my self with the amount.
what are the different jobs in the film industry? how much do you get paid for each?

Here is a movie crew glossary–>http://movies.about.com/library/glossary/blglossary.htm
according to HowStuffWorks the top five highest paying jobs are
2,director $ 92,920
4.Film & video editors-$ 68,980
5.Actors-this was fairly surprising. apparently trhe average hourly wage for an actor is $ 10. 69!
but top actors can get up to $ 20 million.
Overall for film & video editors average wage is in the $ 60,000’s.
