I was paying my actors $10 an hour. Funny thing is, it seemed the more I paid them, the more problems they gave ME!
"He-said-She said", personal bull-chitt I didnot need to know or hear about when we were supposed to be "working" thinking about what they were supposed to be doing next, you know, the reason they were getting paid to be here!
I admit to totally ruining one young man by giving him a nice bonus at the end of a season. (He had a lot of talent)
The next season his ego was sky-high (Too high) and he was a huge butt-pain in the house, very disruptive to the things my other employees were attempting to do.
My main disappointment has always been hiring people who really weren't "Into It", even though all of this peculair fun is hiding around every corner waiting to happen, almost non-stop.
I have been "Into It" from the time I was 4 years old, with no let up!
(I have the pictures to prove it too!hahaha!)
