Oh, I knew what you meant.
The fringes are good via the various unions but the modern commercial film industry can be and often is a home wrecker.

If you can manage your life and finances, you can have lots of quality time away from it but most don't do the manage part well.

The last prolonged downturn in Vancouver wiped out a lot of people who either had a lot of money tied up in equipment or had not planned for the hard times. Much like a lot of folks in Alberta right now. Which, by the way, might mean some nice boats coming back on the market.
