Most people love watching movies, many of them are excited by the prospect of watching the much anticipated movie on the huge screen. When we are viewing a good movie, we tend to leave our world of troubles and stress behind, and step into the plot on the screen. There have been times that I have been so involved in a movie, I felt a bit let down when it ended. I wanted to stay with these wonderful characters and be a part of their lives. When a movie has that effect on the members of the audience, it is sure to be a hit.

The world over, one of the most popular forms of entertainment is going to the movies. The movie industry sees more than 6.5 billion dollars in revenues every year. You certainly recognize the actors and there are times when the name of the director rings a bell. The truth is, unless you know them personally, you probably have never heard of the members of the crew that work hard to make the film become a reality. These are the talented and creative people who work in set design, sound recording, editing, casting, location scouting, electrical technology, make-up, publicity, and many more positions.

Hollywood film makers produce and distribute anywhere between four and five hundred films every year, and Americans contribute billions of dollars to the industry by watching the films. DVD's are also lucrative for the film making industry, with the number of people who watch movies at home. There are many markets for DVD marketing, feature films, informational, and industrial films, to name a few. Employment in the film making industry is growing rapidly and anyone interested in a film making career will reap the benefits.

Satellite and the internet have become a wonderful delivery system for the film making industry. The international marketplace is still key to the success of the film making industry, with over 40% of film revenues coming from foreign markets. This is the time for those interested in a career in film making or television. Many films are shot in the city of New York, bringing a great deal of revenue to the economy.

This fantastic film industry boon will mean many more opportunities for employment in the less glamourous, behind the scenes positions, like set construction workers, and production assistants. These jobs could pave the way to a higher paying position. This job growth is going to affect film reproduction and distribution, as more and more the major studios embrace the concept of DVD rentals and cable. More jobs will open up simply because there is a high turnover when it comes to the film making industry, as many people find they don't have what it takes to hang in there until they can move up to a higher paying job.

There is also going to be an increase in high paying, glamour jobs, such as acting,directing, screenwriting, camera operation, production, and grip. These jobs are in high demand, and for the newcomer, will be few and far between. With the right attitude and patience, you may find a producer or director who likes to work with the same crew time after time. This is the key to a long lasting career in the film making business.
