In the nicest possible way I would like to rant about the state of Lo/No/deferred basis jobs. Now I know that this is an industry whereby there is little funding and little opportunities. Especially for the Indie filmmaker. However in no other industry do you find SKILLED labor taken for granted as in what the media industry is like at the moment. I would say that 70% of jobs out there are No pay or expenses only, these are jobs where they expect you to have your own equipment too. You pay over a grand for a camera and then still are expected to work for nothing. Now I know it is the way it is and that there are reasons for it, but still. here's just a couple of articles that agree with me.
