The Unsung Heroes of Cinema.

In anything in life, there's always a group of people who are the hardest workers. The ones who bring everything together. Who are the forgotten, yet extremely important people of the film industry?

The guys who make the credits at the end of the film.

And no, I'm not talking about the people who do the graphic animation on some really cool credits sequences, like this one from Ratatouille.

No, I'm talking about whoever types every single name into the credits.

These are the backbone of the entire industry. The people who have to make sure they include EVERY single name of EVER single person who had any small part of making the film.

And they also have to include their children's' names! (production babies)

They have to make sure every single copyright is in place.

Every name is under the correct department, and in the politically correct order of the list. 



These people deserve an award. Remember their hard work as you leave the movie theater as soon as the credits start rolling, not even bothering to give a few seconds of recognition to the people who put it all together for you.

Have a nice day.*

(*remember, Mackenzie is the queen of sarcasm, and is not mad if you leave the theater without watching the credits, however, she thinks it's polite to stay through the whole thing.)
