What you see on the screen of a TV show or a movie is the final product that took hundreds, or even thousands, of workers to complete. We know that the US film and TV industry employer more than 2.1 million people, many of them right here in Southern California.
This industry is more than just actors, directors, and producers. There are costume designers, writers, editors, stunt professionals, special effects crews, and more all working hard behind the scenes.
