Re: what's with huge production budgets?

CG isn't the only thing that's expensive when making a movie. You've got to pay EVERYONE, the whole thing is catered, million dollar cameras with half-million dollar lenses, light bulbs that, I shit you not, cost $50 apiece if you cheap out on a college student budget, costumes, props...

None of these things are cheap. When you're making a big action movie with tons of effects, CG or practical, lots of stunts... this shit adds up. Not to mention if you're shutting down a city street somewhere you've got to pay. Travel costs... all these things are determined in the budget.
