The people that get all of the attention in Hollywood are high-paid actors, producers, directors, composers, and screenwriters. But, in reality, films are made by hundreds of people, many of whom are known as "below the line" employees.
These workers aren't usually salaried and jump from production to production like any other journeyman.
They are highly-skilled, some are union, but they are working people just like those in any other industry. So the work stoppage in entertainment will affect them tremendously.
Hollywood's Teamsters have been hard hit by the work stoppage, but some of them are finding work in an industry that's booming because of the crisis, the food and beverage industry.
