I subscribe to a daily email list that notifies actors and crew of upcoming auditions and jobs. I just read the THIRD “job-posting” of the morning for a “small-budget production company” project for which Directors, Writers, and Crew members will be paid. Actors will not. “Except by way of industry standard credits.”
AKA: Your name goes on the Cast List. Wow, guys, thanks.
I can understand projects where everyone is working for experience and credit… but really? Just the “talent?”
