Ridiculous Job offers NOT so ridiculous

How many people out there signed up for something that could have been ridiculous but turned out to be a big break and got paid well. What about others that got burned real bad. Let's face it, to get into this deal, you have to start someplace so where did everyone start and in particular who put out for free and became successful? Maybe this will help the start outs figure out a good for free gig from a bad for free gig!

Simple.

Only work with level headed people. Unstable people are not the kind you want to be involved with. They will waste your time and energy with their lies and big ideas. The sad part is they're everywhere. Only work with honest people with high levels of integrity, or it will burn you. Simple things like, just giving the actors a DVD when the project is over. Lowlife's are usually too selfish to do simple things like that, so don't get involved with them.
