We are not as exchangable as the people who work on movie sets like key grips or boom techs.. We have technical/artistic skills that go beyond the average film set worker.

I would suspect they feel the same about your or other industries. Any time you specialize in a field, you know the ins and outs more than someone outside it. No matter what the field, people outside it always tend to think "oh, is that all they do all day?".

In my past, I worked on sets to make sure the footage film crews were shooting was useable in post production. The guys on the film sets worked a couple of set hours doing only very specific things. The post guys (artists, animators) worked 18 hour days in multiple disciplines with that footage under high pressure. From personal experience I know there is a world of difference.

I don't doubt people on film sets work hard. But we are not working in comparable fields.
