I'll add Mubi!
sure, everyone deserves back end, but they should also get paid up front for work done to actually create the movie.
I don't know anyone who has broken in with free work - if you want to break in, write a great script and have an agent or manager send it around. If you're trying to find an agent or manager, come to LA and work in the industry or try to win a contest. Saying you're worth 0$ doesn't incentivise anyone to help you.
This is great insight! Scenes have to be charged with emotion and opposing POVs!
Thanks man, that got me a little choked up. Excited to see where No Film School and writing takes me!
Awesome - but I wish the library had streaming options like it does with Kindle etc
