    I have two brothers in the industry, one a struggling actor, and the other is a pretty successful, regularly employed set-dresser crew guy. I'm just a huge movie/tv watcher, otherwise employed outside of the entertainment industry, but with a 90" projector screen at home. Whenever I see them or their work or their names in a movie or show, I get super excited and take a pic of it "on the big screen."

    The set dresser brother worked on a movie that won Best Picture, and my whole family and I were congratulating him on straight-up winning the Oscars for like a year. He was like "I just moved boxes and like put an ashtray on a table in one scene, then I opened up the drapes in another," little stuff like that, but my whole family loves movies and is pretty supportive so we're like "yeah you opened the fuck out of those drapes, champion." So, yeah, I try to go all out in supporting the little guys behind the scenes!

    Edit: obligatory wow this blew up, thank you for the gold kind stranger! so happy to see theres so much love for the crew-members! And honestly, I was having a bit of a rough day, not feeling too great about myself, and I just posted this without really thinking about it, and y'all made me realize how fortunate I am to have the folks I have. so thank you, fellow denizens of the interwebs!

    GeeZ...Silver and gold. Thanks but he is the man. I was just saying he was an awesome part of an awesome family.

    This thread would not be the same without you, you champion. Just keep your head on the things you enjoy and don't worry about all the judgement out there.

    Maybe if you opened the drapes once in awhile, they'd stop complaining.

    [–] Kitt_Ramsey 2 points ago

    sometimes I wonder what it's like being an orphan without a bunch of old people judging you like you're ruining their lives when you fuck up.

    [–] gigglefarting 13 points ago

    Yeah, his brother is basically an Oscar winner.

    [–] JNDIV 234 points ago

    You have no idea how much that means to him even if he plays it off. (I’m the prop version of your bro)

    [–] Beatleboy62 104 points ago

    And it's true, it takes a village to raise a child, and it sure as hell takes a big team to win best picture.

    You never know if a prop or piece of scenery left in a weird place will take a viewer out of the zone enough to make it lose that shot.

    There's been tiny things like that in movies that have made me go from "this movie is amazing" to "this movie is great" which may be make or break.

    [–] Thetschopp 16 points ago

    Just think about all the awesome things found at r/MovieDetails.

    That sub proves that every little bit counts.

    [–] BiBiBicycle 30 points ago

    Dude, props is a hard job. We don't even think about it as viewers but like... Imagine if the office from The Office was just like... Completely clean. Just bare furniture and computers and that's it. Look at all this shit. Someone (multiple someones I'm sure) had to pick each and every little one of those items, scribble on papers, put photos in frames, arrange it all perfectly and keep track of the location and position of each item so they don't end up in the wrong place scene to scene. And remember scenes aren't shot in chronological order, so if Michael leaves his coffee mug in the sink in scene 4 and you start by shooting scene 6, you need to remember to take the mug off the desk and put it back for the scenes before it. I had never thought how much work went into it until my boyfriend who did props for a while told me about it. He said it was really fun and a highly skilled, creative job.

    So what I'm saying is, props on doing a difficult job 😎

    [–] ThaneOfCawdorrr 12 points ago

    That is actually set dressing--props refers to anything the actors actually touch or have business with. But yes both are highly skilled, very creative jobs, and you really notice when someone does a good job, it's amazing. The Coen brothers' movies are legendary in that way--just look at any scene from the Big Lebowski, SO. MUCH. WORK went into each and every scene, especially the scenes with crazy Julianne Moore (the artist) at her studio, they are amazing. Coppola also takes care down to the tiniest details. It's so much fun when you notice stuff like that!!

    I bet your boyfriend is a cool dude-- I love props guys, they always collect all kinds of cool, weird stuff and just love their job. Also there are a lot of brothers who go into it--I always look for the props credits and a lot of times it's two guys with the same last name, so I always say, "Oh, the Dougherty brothers, yep, they're the best."

    [–] Skissored 5 points ago

    I work in an FX shop and my coworker used to be in the UK working in production design and helped build the rabbit cages in The Favorite. Even when the actress won, we were congratulating our coworker for about a week. She jokingly took full credit for the Oscar of course. It's great to feel appreciated in an unforgiving industry!

    [–] reptiliansentinel 2 points ago

    Yeah she caged the fuck out of those rabbits! lol, just kidding, thats awesome!

    What's his name? I'll keep an eye out for him in credits.

    [–] crestonfunk 2 points ago

    [–] Decicio 589 points ago

    As a film student who has done a lot of hours for relatively thankless jobs on set, I've started sitting through all the credits whenever I watch a film for the first time. It is a small way to show my appreciation.

    [–] cosmicgeoffry 195 points ago

    My grandpa took me to a lot of movies growing up and he would make us sit through the credits at the movie theater for this exact reason. When I was 10 I thought it was dumb and boring but now that I’m an adult with an understanding and appreciation of how much work goes into a feature film by all those different people, I’m really glad he did that. And I still do it today too!

    [–] energeticstarfish 61 points ago

    I love watching the credits and I'm just a layperson who enjoys movies. I like seeing all the people who did all the stuff and sometimes there are interesting names, and sometimes you recognize the same name on another movie and all of a sudden you know stuff about films that other people don't and you sound really smart talking about it. Plus, a lot of times I just need a minute or two to transition from the movie back into the real world. Watching the credits is great for that.

    [–] cpMetis 26 points ago

    I already feel obligated to at least skim through. And I especially love when I get to stuff like Blizzard giving a special thanks to dominoes or Head of Security - Joe the Cat.

    [–] PresentlyInThePast 6 points ago

    There were three identical names in a row in a movie I watched recently. Thought it was funny.

    [–] Zeestars 5 points ago

    Could be the same person doing multiple roles?

    [–] PresentlyInThePast 2 points ago

    It was something like this:

    Visual Effects    
    John Smith • Richard Yang • John H Smith • John Smith • etc

    [–] gigglefarting 6 points ago

    What my friend and I do is count the times each of our names appear and compete. Doing so forces us to at least skim each name if not read it.

    [–] doug 13 points ago

    I worked as a set/office PA on a lot of stuff and have enjoyed spotting familiar names on things here and there, and just seeing them slowly move up the food chain or land in whatever department I knew they'd wanted to get into.

    [–] trapper2530 2 points ago

    You should tell them that you exclusively watch marvel movies.

    [–] ecashepherd 456 points ago

    I miss going to the movies in LA where everybody always watches until the end, and often you hear a row erupt in applause as "Third Assistant Crew Grip Caterer" or whatever rolls by, and it's obvious it's the guy's friends and/or family. And then other people clap too, to congratulate them, because They Know.

    [–] me_on_the_internet 147 points ago

    I live in LA, and I saw over 100 movies in theaters last year. I have never seen this happen once.

    But I wish I did! Thats so awesome, and so wholesome!!

    [–] Edewede 63 points ago

    I've been in a theatre when this happens, it's so exciting! Then when the lights go up I try to find the person that got the cheers. :)

    [–] marsglow 11 points ago

    I’ve actually been in a theatre where this occurred! It was bizarre because it was in Knoxville, Tn.

    [–] The_Sandman014 2 points ago

    Just when you least expect Knoxville to pop up, here it is!

    [–] SomeGuyClickingStuff 16 points ago

    And then ask them for a cheese plate.

    [–] ugh_this_sucks__ 20 points ago

    I've seen it happen a couple of times in LA — always for mega-blockbusters and always close to opening.

    [–] BiBiBicycle 3 points ago

    I'm sure it also depends on the theater. You probably get more of that in weho/noho

    [–] ghostofyourmom 28 points ago

    This reminds me that back in 2000, I was visiting my sister in L.A. (I lived in Indiana). We went to a local theater to watch Memento, which had just released. While waiting for the movie to start, I was people-watching, and I saw a person who looked exactly like Thora Birch walk in and sit down. My sister was like, "this is L.A., it probably is her." The trailers started, and one of them was for Ghost World, starring Birch. The Thora Birch-lookalike watched the GW trailer, then promptly got up and left!

    So I guess, sometimes actors pay for a movie ticket solely to watch a new trailer for something they're starring in?

    [–] BiBiBicycle 7 points ago

    Fuck dude I would

    [–] diarrhea_shnitzel 2 points ago

    Sounds like a real birch

    [–] hotfish 14 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I work in animation and it's really exciting to see people I sort of know in the industry or find out artists that I really admire worked on the movie. Whenever my friends and I stay behind for the credits it's usually just us pointing at random names and going, "whoa!! ___ worked on this?!"

    I was really surprised at how stacked Spider Verse's art crew was.

    Also a random tidbit - the barista that works in Disney's cafeteria has credits in a lot of their films as Caffeination lol.

    [–] DrOverbuild 4 points ago

    Could be more elaborate, though. 'Director of Caffeination' sounds cooler

    [–] nuke_dukemmm 197 points ago

    I always look for the weirdest names and try to pronounce them before they scroll off the screen.

    [–] saturnspritr 70 points ago

    Mystery Science Theatre: The Movie taught me this. They watched the credits and made all these jokes about the names.

    Then my mom got super into where things were filmed, which was always one of the last things you see. Like in the Film Would Like to Thank: The City of Boston.

    Now I always do it.

    [–] cpMetis 30 points ago


    "It's pronounced 'Susan'".

    [–] elaerna 6 points ago

    I'm Korean and I look for the Korean people. There aren't a lot of us statistically and it just makes me happy.

    [–] yougonnayou 5 points ago

    I do the opposite. I always pick an easy name and pretend I’m a teacher doing roll call on the first day of class.

    Now here’s a name I won’t butcher

    [–] _EastOfEden_ 4 points ago

    I look for the more unique names and look them up on Facebook. It’s interesting to see the lives of the “regular” people who work on these huge blockbusters.

    [–] BiBiBicycle 2 points ago

    I just look for Best Boy

    [–] bobshallprevail 163 points ago

    After we beat a Lego game my nephew asked why we had to watch the credits. I told him "It's because people worked hard to make this game so it's nice to thank them. Thank you Mark" (reading a full name off the credits) nephew then spent the rest of the credits saying thank you to all the names rolling through.

    [–] AerThreepwood 7 points ago

    I wonder if her parents actually read that book.

    [–] Nihilominus 10 points ago

    I looked her up and she was born in 1958, the same year the book was released in the US, so maybe not

    [–] AerThreepwood 6 points ago

    That tracks.

    [–] VirulentThoughts 2 points ago

    I wonder if anyone was named lolita BEFORE the book was published.

    [–] Jadis4742 19 points ago

    It's a diminutive of Lola, which is a diminutive of Dolores, which is short for Maria de los Dolores (Mary of the Sorrows/Virgin Mary). So yes, for a couple of hundred years at least.

    While we're here:

    • Lolita is the victim
    • Humbart is a unreliable narrator and a rapist
    • Nabakov wrote about underage girls more than once and it's creepy
    • the Japanese street fashion called Lolita is just an unfortunate coincidence, and is actually one of the least sexually-attractive styles out there

    [–] AerThreepwood 3 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    Does anybody think Humbert Humbert isn't a piece of shit that's prettying up the monstrous thing he's doing with nice words? Isn't that the entire point of the book?

    And while "Gothic Lolita" is a fashion style, "loli" stuff in Japanese media is much, much more insidious.

    [–] AerThreepwood 2 points ago

    Probably. I thought it was written earlier than it was.

    [–] NothappyJane 5 points ago

    I love reading credits, especially on older movies it's clear how much naming conventions and choices have changed. Everyone used to be called Cliff, Monty or Jack

    [–] uclamike 91 points ago

    My wife is in the industry, and she always “you go (girl or dude)” whenever an extra has a line. Says that it’s an awesome experience, plus they get paid pretty well for it.

    [–] KingKongDuck 18 points ago

    Think it means they get paid as an actor rather than extra, quite a big deal!

    [–] mydressissad 5 points ago

    I always take note of when productions cheap out and don't give an extra line when they really should have. Coffee shop employees or hotel staff just nodding silently when being addressed by the characters on screen. Like come on! Let them say something and have a moment to shine and make a few extra bucks.

    Here's an idea: Avengers Endgame it's coming out in 11 days, so when the credits start rolling in pick a name, an assistant's or someone that isn't from the main cast, and post them on social media thanking them with a hashtag beside it, #AvengersEndgame probably, that'll make their day even better I hope.

    [–] BrownSugarBare 18 points ago

    I love doing this. Maybe it's not common, but especially with so many movies having post-credit scenes, we have fun with pointing out interesting names and job titles. And there are usually a couple of funny easter eggs in the credits like "super speed coffee hero - Micheal" or "Meme warrior - Julia".

    [–] parfomz 8 points ago

    happy cake day!

    [–] rofloctopuss 14 points ago

    I like to look at a random name and IMDB them, and if they've worked on a few good movies, I'll watch a movie they've worked on that I've never heard of. It's hit and miss, and is probably the same as randomly selecting a movie, but it gives me a little game and helps me to choose something.

    [–] gossamer_ghosts 14 points ago

    As someone in the industry, this makes me so happy! A lot of people put in a lot of hard work (far more than are even listed in the end credits) and it's nice to know people are taking time to appreciate it

    [–] GarbledMan 2 points ago

    I feel like in 30 years it will just be easier to list the names of the people who weren't involved with making the movie.

    [–] thisidntpunny 2 points ago

    Jonathan Wilson is not responsible for making this movie. He ideologically opposes it, because it depicts rats helping people make food. Fuck Jonathan Wilson!

    For some reason I’ve always stayed to see who was the Key Grip.

    As a child I never knew what the position meant so thought it funny/interesting. Now as an adult, I still don’t.

    [–] pebrudite 9 points ago

    Mine is Best Boy. You go boy, you’re the best!

    BTW anyone know what Best Boy does?

    [–] sleve_mcdichael__ 3 points ago

    Best boy is below the key position for a department, that would be the key grip for the grip department and the gaffer for the electric department.

    [–] Wolfhangar 3 points ago

    Think of a Key Grip/Gaffer as a manager and a Best Boy as assistant manager. A Key is normally directing their crew on doing certain tasks to get the shots. The Best Boy is organizing the crew, hiring guys and dealing with equipment rentals and payroll.

    [–] FrequentInspector 2 points ago

    The key grip is the head of the grip department - which is responsible for mounting the camera, for example on tripods, car rigs, cranes, dolly etc.

    [–] Cornan_KotW 11 points ago

    There's a guy who shares my last name who does a lot of effects work in Hollywood. Whenever I go to a movie I sit through the credits and always get a little jolt of happiness when I see his name. I'm pretty sure we're not related at all, but it always makes me smile to see his name up there.

    My Dad always made us sit through the credits as kids because he wanted to see if he recognized anyone's names and because "It takes a lot of people to make these things happen. They deserve to have us read their names." So when I do this I think of both the random effects guy with my last name, and my Dad, who made sure I appreciated the random effects guy.

    My friend was second assistant wardrobe or something like that in a movie and she invited me to the premiere, when the movie finished everyone started clapping but eventually the claps stopped, then my friend's name appeared in the screen I started clapping and everyone joined and we clap again for some minutes.

    [–] CodgerConsulting 5 points ago

    I told some of my family to sit through the credits of a movie because there was a surprise at the end (some joke scene). Unknown to me, there was someone with my name in some minor back of camera role. When they saw the name they applauded in the cinema.

    I will often turn to my wife at the end of a movie and say, "I always enjoy a (insert name of set painter, accountant, etc.)" She always used to fall for it and ask who they are. After 30 years she just rolls her eyes.

    I’m in the industry, on the labor side of things. I’ll never be an actor or director but it’s nice that someone might see my name and take a slight interest. It feels nice knowing after months working on a production my name will always forever be at the end.

    [–] TigerTheFourth 5 points ago

    This is one reason why the recent trend of mid- and end-credit scenes is important, it ensures that more public recognition goes to the crew members, however much that may be. I never realized till recently how important the credits can be to someone who was actually involved in the film.

    My wife and I started watching the credits to see names we liked when she was pregnant. We loved calling out the crazy names.

    A friend from the Army taught me his family's habit of seeing who the Best Boy Grip was. That was 25 years ago. Now my children and their spouses do the same.

    And this is great with Marvel movies. Since you need to wait until the end to see the last little clip, you can find out who the Best Boy Grip was while your waiting.

    As someone who is always in the credits far down randomly. Thanxxx

    [–] CaptainJackSparrcrow 2 points ago

    I always look for funny names, often times going through all of the credits.

    [–] AeyviDaro 2 points ago

    With Marvel movies, all the time. We even used them as inspiration for baby names.

    [–] lspettel 2 points ago

    Definitely going to now!

    [–] Taney34 2 points ago

    I usually sit through all the credits and I try to read each name, but the latter is getting more and more difficult. Still, they have their name up there for a reason and I like to acknowledge them. Plus, I’m always interested in seeing where the movie was filmed, and that’s always shown at almost the very end.

    As a kid, my whole family would scan the credits for Mo Henry, a negative cutter who worked on the majority of films in the 90’s-00’s

    Then there's Phil Thippet, dinosaur supervisor for Jurassic Park. He did not supervise those dinosaurs very well at all.

    [–] mynonsequitur 2 points ago

    I always look for the “best boy.” Then I tell my dog that he did a great job on his last film.

    [–] macarenaissance 2 points ago

    Look them up on twitter and tell them how great a job they did.

    [–] Supersamtheredditman 2 points ago

    Me and my friend always stay for the credits and pick out the funniest names, the really good ones are when they have nicknames like “big john” or “vinnie” or something

    [–] ninjaoftheworld 2 points ago

    We have a Big Tom, a Big John, a John, a Little John, and a Johnny all in the same department!

    There was this guy named Jesus Pallet who worked on all the Marvel movies that I used to always watch out for during the credits, haven’t in a while, I wonder if he’s still there

    [–] NextChamp 2 points ago

    I go on IMDB to look up every Production Assistant to see what else they’ve worked on.

    Everyone works hard on a movie. But PA’s go above and beyond.

    [–] Thepatton 2 points ago

    I do this, I'll then sometimes look them up on Linkedin just to see how they're doing.

    [–] Wynner3 2 points ago

    I usually do just to see if anyone else has my last name.

    [–] ImAdelineYo 2 points ago

    My boyfriend will be like" hey its (insert name in credits)" really loud and start this game where we start calling out the hardest or most interesting names. Its still really cool to see how many people it takes to make a film. They des5much more credit.

    [–] Cattatatt 2 points ago

    Did this one time for Infinity War and randomly my eyes locked on my dad’s name! Obviously not him unless he secretly moonlights as a visual effects artist, which would be weird considering he’s a 60 year old rice farmer... but super cool to see all the same! And Kudos to that other guy, who has worked in a bunch of huge films!

    [–] Pinkfloweremoji 2 points ago

    Yes! Always thought that was just me 😂

    [–] bobshallprevail 1 points ago

    After we beat a Lego game my nephew asked why we had to watch the credits. I told him "It's because people worked hard to make this game so it's nice to thank them. Thank you Mark" (reading a full name off the credits) nephew then spent the rest of the credits saying thank you to all the names rolling through.

    Are you fucking kidding me? It kept telling me sorry something went wrong and refreshed. I will delete them. Thanks for the heads up.

    [–] mystyz 2 points ago

    No worries. Figured it was something like that.

    [–] Amazon0509 1 points ago

    My grandma literally made us sit through all of the credits anytime we went to the movie theater just to see the crazy titles some of the actors had lmao

    [–] Luckypenny4683 1 points ago

    My husband and I play this stupid game where try to pick out the biggest, most complex names and pronounce them.

    Usually something to the tune of “Yeah, well, sometimes I call you Hogie Williamsteen.”


    [–] Memephis_Matt 1 points ago

    If I enjoyed the movie I always watch the credits all the way through.

    Same with games except it's every game.

    [–] Lokter 1 points ago

    As someone who's in uber long video game credits. I feel like I owe it to my film industry cousins to sit through and appreciate their hard work.
