This e-mail is from a senior producer at a well known ad agency. (I have never worked with her before)
Hi- I'm helping produce a indie film. It's a funny short film about a sperm donor. We shot 2 weekends ago but our outdoor shoot day was rained out. We're re-shooting it this Saturday and are looking for help as our script supervisor isn't avail now. We're all working for $25/day plus movie credit. Are you interested? We will be shooting at a park from 8am-5pm. Please let me know. Thank you.
I'm curious to know who was willing to work for $25/day. (if I did the math right that would be a whole $2.80/hour)
Ohhh wait, don't forget you get a movie credit too!
Update: Someone e-mailed me and said this post was a bit snotty. Yup, and it's probably because I'm tired of these kind of offers. Why professional people (a SENIOR PRODUCER) would think it's OK to ask someone to work for $25/a day is beyond me. What other industry works this way????
