Not really—not relative to most other careers. You're left mainly alone, the work—while tedious—is always changing and presenting new challenges to keep you on your toes, and you love all of your co-workers (yourself). Also, there are a lot of people involved in each production, and when the film is in your hands, they're all waiting on you. So you'd better get on the ball, put in some 12-14 hour days, and have a faster turn-around time than a cowboy in a quick draw.
