CLEVELAND -- Local workers are being sought to assemble as crew members for Marvel's soon-to-be-filmed-in-Cleveland superhero flick "Captain America: Winter Soldier."

The studio's big return to town later this spring will create loads of new jobs and increase spending in our region throughout the film's production.

But just how much cash could crew members make? There are  many factors that go into pay rates for crew members based on things like budget, region, union, negotiations, etc.

One woman who worked on "Avengers" in Cleveland tells us she was paid approximately $215 per day for working in the props department and around $1,500 per day in hazard pay for stunt work.

We've compiled a list of some base pay for a variety of jobs within the film business as identified by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers in Los Angeles and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE):

Prop/model makers: $24.51/hour.
