As some of you might know, I am also a dog trainer. One of my teachers favorite answers to dog behavior questions and why dogs do what they do is, “it depends.”
After reading all of the wonderful comments on the original post, Acting 4 Free, I think I have come to a similar conclusion to this tough question. “As an actor, should I ever work for free?” IT DEPENDS.
If you are an actor and you are reading this blog and you are considering working on a project for free, read the original post and the comments by our lovely readers.
And, if you choose to work on a project, and you think that some time down the road that project will be sold, distributed, or profited from, PLEASE get a contract so you receive the payment you deserve (deferred, etc.).
As always, thank you for reading and thank you for your words.
