So I have a question for everyone and I would like your honest thoughts. Here is the hypothetical situation:
A guy new to the film industry wants to do a series of videos on youtube as a precursor to bigger budget projects. He is looking for actors and decides that, to keep the cost affordable at this stake, he will only work with people willing to take part in the project as volunteers. Thus would be done under the agreed promise that once the project either starts to earn some kind of return revenue (say it gets popular on youtube) or the project is latter picked up by an official company or bigger investors, everyone will get paid. Would you work under those terms?
What are your thoughts?
I heard from a friend that this was something that has happened before in the industry with those new or un-established but how open are you, as actors, to the situation?
