Here's the thing. In the entertainment industry, there are cycles. Speak to someone who's been in the industry for 40 years and you'll hear about the ups and the downs. Yes, right now technology is changing and the economy is affecting budgets. Many producers are sacrificing "craft/art" for budget cuts, thinking it's okay because the cool cameras will make up for it. But it's part of a cycle.
When someone who really cares about the craft, hires a cast and crew of artists and makes a movie or TV show that breaks out, everyone is going to want to jump on the bandwagon, and talent will be valued and compensated again. At least that's what I choose to believe.
