: : : Something of significance I forgot to mention -
: : : They all seemed to be hiring.
: : ...yeah, but do you have to belong to a Union to be hired?...hehehe...
: I'm sure this is probably something everyone, including Snakebite, already know, but just in case: union membership is never an issue in being hired at a union studio. Studios don't ask about it, and the union has no influence on who a producer decides to hire. Besides, you can't can't just go out and join the union. You get hired at a union studio, at which time you are automatically in the union (yep, whether you like it or not). I think Snakebite was just being playful, but just wanted anyone who's lurking to know that you don't need to be in the union to get a union job (unlike many industries).
Yes I was being playful, more like sarcastic, but from my experience, and maybe its just that Im so damn pretty, I've experienced a few times that the producer loved my work, but when they found out I wasn't a Union member they said they couldn't hire unless i joined, MGM was one of them. Maybe it was just me, it sure as hell wasn't the quality of my work, but maybe I've experienced some jerks that were player haters, i certainly don't want to discourage anyone but I can only speak from experience.
