Thanks Luis, best of luck to you on your next projects!
I see what you're saying, and I think that's a fair point.
Hey Sean, sorry you missed it. The $1M project in question here is the product I'm directing video for at Construx. Here's a draft of a video to give you a better idea of what Im actually doing.

Also, I completely agree with your position on these crowd-funded spec work sites. If you're getting started and want a sandbox-like environment to hone your skills in, I think they can be pretty great for that. But if you're an experienced professional, the idea of creating work for potentially no pay not only sucks for you, but doesn't do the industry any favors either. It just continues to encourage the idea that creative professionals are ok to work for free.
Awesome man! Go dominate!
You're exactly right man. I don't do too much with Poptent these days. If a private assignment comes along with multiple payouts sometimes I'll look it over with my team and decide to take it on, but beyond that theres just too much risk involved to try and realistically run a business competing for spec-work projects. Good luck to you!
Awesome man, it sounds like you're already doing some really great stuff! Good for you, I'm really glad to hear that :)
