Don't worry, if none of your anti-social MUA mates can be bothered chatting to you I'll  do it.

Just a thought. Maybe you should have added PAID in the thread title to guarantee catching their eye.

They arent really anti social , but I get your point , I was thinking of adding Paid to the title thread but then on here they would have thought it was a hoax

Having just written that I had a quick look in the casting section and there does seem to be more paid work appearing , so maybe the message is getting across  emoticon

Next thing you know they will be posting paid work for photographers but then I maybe living in cloud cuckoo land emoticon

False alarm. That's just another stereotypical 'glamour model' Casting Call with the options set wrong.

ha ha John, I noticed that there are more paid castings , shame not much in my area but hey ho. I think people are realising we need paying when they get no response to wanting us to work TF all the time. MUA's are not anti social by the way Bob we chat on here and message each other when we have time, but as for most this is our full time job, we are hopefully out earning money more often than sitting in front of the pc lol

Hi all

People have been adding paid work to their casting calls, then when you take a close look they are only offering expenses or £20

When will we be recognised as professionals

Or worse still, a job that is totally unpaid as in the case of one of the current castings.  I've no objection to people asking for help with charity work whatsoever, but disguising it as paid is annoying! emoticon

lol yes Lisa i noticed tha one too.. if it's for charity just say so don't make out it's paid first of all! And whilst there is paid work going up as has been noted it is generally not for much money. I have answered some paid castings with my rates only to receive replies of , oh I have changed my plans now lol ( euphamism for how much ???? i think lol not that I am expensive just the going rate lol ) oh well it keeps us entertained for a few mins
