This is a problem for all creative professionals who fight the stereotype of the starving artist within the general population and those new to their industry.

    That film looks good. I delight in his professional rants. Thanks for the post Mark!

    So then why does he think he gets a DVD for free? Because it is customary? Who’s the one trying to get something for nothing now.

    Of course, if it’s in the contract and they don’t deliver, that’s another story.

    And about that interview, was he paid for the original use? Did he go back and make sure they didn’t own it in the first place? Maybe they didn’t have to call him at all and were just being polite.
