Recently, I've been contacted by various indie filmmakers interested in me for their projects, but I've had to turn down the auditions because some of my warning flags were raised. I thought I'd write a post about those flags, but wanted to check my archives to make sure I wasn't repeating myself.
And voila: Dear Low-Budget Independent Filmmaker - the post I wrote EXACTLY ONE YEAR AGO TODAY.
The most important point to reiterate:
"What you need on set is a well-prepared actor. If you don't let me have
sides in advance, how can you assess my skills at preparing?"
