As a member of the Class of 1988 and former owner of fingerless lace gloves, leg-warmers and many flash dance cut tops, I can't wait. I'm cheering you on. Wow, a lot of sour grapes posted above. I'm sure pulling off on a small budget movie and keeping your vision in mind is incredibly challenging. Its bound upset a few sense-of-entitlement people who thought this was Hollywood. I don't know anyone here or if the people involved have integrity or not. But here's but bottom line - talent & crew, sign a simple contract spelling out the terms of your employment. Its best for all parties involved. No contract, no deal. If those terms are broken, prove it in small claims court for what's fair and move on. You know, you don't HAVE to do the project. But if you believe in the vision, see talent, then by all means volunteer or work for peanuts. Most first time filmmaker films are a gut wrenching labor of love that sadly don't go anywhere even if they are brilliant. But if by chance, it is a catalyst for something BIG, how very cool to be involved in it.
