Due to a recent train of abuses I am no longer working on any Texas film productions other than my own.
When someone promises you a position on any project—commercial, television, short film, feature film—is “Paid” that means you are either paid:
- Project Rate
Paid does not mean Deferred.
A deferred payment is money that will be paid to you eventually…you know, in the future.
99.9% of all deferred payments are never honored. They may be well-intentioned, and there may be a dozen very valid reasons why you cannot fulfill your promise of deferred funds—that’s another matter. But you do not tell someone a position is paid when it is in fact deferred.
I do not accept deferred positions.
