It seems like such a simple fucking list when I write it out so why is this so difficult and why do I spend all of my days doing shit that isn’t helping.

The Real Abandoned Overlook Hotel
Unlike the fictional Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, this hotel is really named the Overlook. The abandoned hotel is located in the small, wine growing town of Bernkastel-Kues in Germany. Other than it has been unoccupied for about 13 years, there is no information as to why the hotel was closed. All of the furniture remains and it looks as if everyone there simply left. There are rumors that the hotel is haunted. According to urban explorers who frequent the spooky site, cameras malfunction, sounds can be heard throughout the premises and items seem to move around the hotel by themselves.
The fact that actors like Robert Downey Jr can get $50 million for one film when the ENTIRE crews paychecks combined won’t be anywhere near that, makes me angry.
YES the actors are the ones on screen.
YES the actors work round the clock and mess up their diets and exercise (or not) for their roles.
YES they often go for long periods of time without seeing their family or friends.
YES they are in the public eye all the time.
But in what world are they working harder than the set builders and decorators and painters and riggers and camera crew and production team and locations team and electrics and post production and visual effects and special effects and stunts and transport and security and stand ins and sound guys and the countless others that slip my mind at the moment? We also work round the clock and mess up our diets and exercise routines. We also go for long periods without seeing family and friends. We work a thankless job that few people care exists.
When I’m on a set during the non-filming hours, and people as me whats going on, I say “We are filming a movie later” and they say, “Are you in it?” “No, I’m a production assistant, so I work behind the scenes.” “Oh.” and they walk away, no longer interested in my existence.
People are so concerned with what they see on screen that they think it’s okay for an actor to make so many millions, while there are crew members getting paid minimum wage who work longer hours and a more stressful job than the lead actor (I’m not saying I’m one of those people, just that I know a few).
In one film, RDJ makes more than the entire budget for Game of Thrones season 3.
If I worked full time, year-round, at my current rate of pay, it would take me a thousand years to make what RDJ makes in one film.
I love my job and the pay, but hearing actors complaining about wanting more money in their contracts REALLY makes me angry.
I really like the idea of a Battle Royale AU, maybe even more than a Hunger Games one. Mostly cause you can play around with the kids relationships more and it’s more of a psychological thinger. They wouldn’t need the thing around their neck because of Doc Scratch’s omnipresence though.
Can you guess who the two mystery class transfer student are?
So you mean Dangan Ronpa + Homestuck?
