Auditions: Monday, February 28, 2011

This page contains auditions posted on Monday, February 28, 2011.

As we come to the end of the month, I wanted to revisit a brief discussion that we had in the chat box regarding working for little or no pay. An article is circulating the world of Facebook, and I felt it was worth mentioning. This well written article reviews situations we typically encounter as artists, and outlines when it may be okay to work for no monetary compensation.

With March kicking off what is said to be a very busy Spring for the Portland film world, let's discuss when it has benefited you to work for no monetary compensation, and whether it is something you ever choose to do.

I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts and feedback on this!

If you are a fan of the blog, please share this with actor friends. If you have any feedback for me on how to improve my blog, share this with me so that I may work on improving the blog.
