People are no longer interested in simple movies, people are interested in spectacular movies. If a movie has a wedding scene, the scene has to be a spectacle and look realistic. This means that there has to be a catering budget for a wedding and a suitable wedding location which is not cheap, these costs contribute to making a Hollywood movie’s budget high.
Stunt performers in Hollywood movies are done by skilled, qualified and professional personnel who require to be paid good money for the dangerous stunts that they pull off or do. If a movie director or producer has incorporated a bar fight scene into a movie, a bar has to be either built or rented. The owner of the bar is required to be compensated adequately for the loss of income with an additional sum of money to make it worth the bar owner’s while. If a bar is built, costs are incurred when stocking it with liquor and building a realistic bar set.
A Hollywood blockbuster may earn millions of dollars, making it possible for the most famous actors or actresses to ask for any amount of money in millions to star in a movie. These famous actors or actresses ask for huge amounts of money like tens of millions in dollars because the actors also have people to pay. Actors use the money paid to them to pay their agents, managers, support staff, security or even to settle their union dues. Films require qualified personnel of picture editors for special effects in movies who include a qualified crew to take video scenes with powerful cameras. Famous songs used in films are not free, hence a Hollywood budget is high to pay for using popular songs.
Films made in Hollywood have numerous actors who have to be paid and transported to the shooting location. These movie performers have to be fed, accommodated or even provided with equipment needed to do their jobs smoothly. A Hollywood movie requires a production assistant who has the lowest paid skill set but receives about 750 dollars a week depending on the budget. Movie set medical personnel are paid very well together with movie set drivers because of experience on other films, therefore proving that they know their jobs. Locations used in shooting films are not cheap due to securing rights to use these locations while police are paid to keep intruders away.
