You are not alone. I wonder about this and a lot of things that are going on in this business. The pay to play, pay to be seen, pay to work and the latest eye ball rolling with the Kick Starter issue.
When I wrote something pertaining to this a year ago, a responder basically said, that's just how the business is-get over it. I haven't been on here until tonight because of that true but idiotic comment.
Have you noticed that more and more "star-names" are taking roles on TV. This would not have been the case years ago. And that wasn't too long ago.
Guess that's the changing face of the business. Stay focused and keep pushing.

It's really lame that they closed the initial thread. At least it's still open to searches, I guess.

fyi, I'm not super clear on the connection you're making between people getting paid very little to do a lot for Human Centipede 3, and Kickstarter & stars doing more TV. Could you elaborate?

VLADIMIR / Non-Union / Co-Star / Male or Female / All Ethnicities / 28-41
Vladimir is born of the German father and a Spanish mother. Between the ages of birth and 7 he lived in Germany, from the ages of 7 and 12 he grew up in China, from the ages of 12 and 33 years old he lived in the United States and is a graduate of both Harvard and Stanford. A double PhD, yet when he speaks his vernacular is rather common enabling him to reach the masses and gain affinity with all. The sound of his voice clearly portrays that of great learning and wisdom. And there is a peace about him that is extraordinary yet a passion that is difficult if not impossible to describe. In part because it exists on many levels from peaceful passion to passionate conviction with the purpose that no one will be able to stand in his way because his confidence is beyond anything anyone has ever seen before. He speaks in absolutes that he and the team will succeed no matter what. And this team believes him. He shows up on a Thursday and spends each day and night until Tuesday morning working diligently on formulating a plan that will turn the company around quickly. He has his 1st meeting and explains there are several key principles that everyone must adhere to.1. no one will speak negatively about anyone on the team. 2. each of us will have 100% confidence in our success. 3. We will create teams comprised of 12 individuals with complementary 3 skill sets. 4. The team that creates the most earnings, provided that the company is profitable, which he then turns around and says the company will be profitable - will each get 3 week vacation to Hawaii. 5. failure is not an option, faith and believing in our success is the only option. No one will ever speak with the possibility of an open door to failure. 6. If someone becomes stressed, we will share loving energy with them. 7. We are building a soundproof room, where people can go yell, scream, saying, play the drums, play the piano, jump up and down and do whatever they need to do to release physical pent-up neural pathways that are holding negative energy release it into positive loving creative energy. 8. We're putting together a company band that will play during lunch breaks. 9. We will all play drums, sing, and take a five-minute break every 55 min. the way he speaks is accessible by everyone yet offensive to no one. He's a master of maintaining positive healthy energy and a loving nature. He never speaks of anything but absolute confidence in the teams and company's success. The group that makes the most money, and the highest return on sales is awarded a three-week trip to Hawaii or any place of their choosing in the continental United States. Plus a $10,000 gift certificate for the group to enjoy. There will be 2 to 3 company brands that will jam during lunch. Band members will get an additional 30 min. break to practice for that days jam and songs. Everyone company.wide is offered the opportunity to write a theme song for the company. Everyone is thrilled

He has incredible leadership capabilities, that he utilizes with love and kindness yet with a stern look in his eyes knowing you're going to follow what he has to say. He never lets stress see the light of day, because of his competence much like others on the team that there was no other option then success. He will succeed. He will rise to victory. That no matter what he will be successful in the objectives that has been set before him and that he has accepted to take on. He comes on in the movie when everyone feels all is lost, that just when they were going for the big win, they're hit with a lawsuit and now they're all diverting their focus to presenting evidence rather than getting stuff done. then in what becomes an unbelievably bold move he says give the amount evidence you need, and then get back to work we will create more revenues than we need in this frivolous lawsuit could ever get, we will succeed and And when this lawsuit by creating revenues beyond what they claim is theirs. the team believes, and they all fight and realize those goals 3 months ahead of the conclusion of the lawsuit which they win anyway. The results, even the janitors have become millionaires with their stock positions. I happy ending to an otherwise tragic challenging story all the way to the bitter end of the 3. That was bittersweet as those who are ill and did up in jail. Rather than in some type insane asylum for the criminally ill the criminal minds those who suffer from antisocial disorder.

NANCY / Non-Union / Principal / Male or Female / All Ethnicities / 35-55
Nancy is a extraordinary social media expert, with a extraordinary track record of creating profitability for companies in under 30 days, even if everyone was once struggling. Contests, incentives, giveaways, rule the pathways to heartfelt initiatives that are timely and well thought out, calculated yet improvise, loving yet with the purpose that shares a bottom line potential, and reality and speed above all else of course with excellence and a focus on return on investment.. She comes in the movie when the companies is failing, and needs a jumpstart, and that jumpstart comes in the form of her asking the entire company to spend one hour a day evangelizing themselves and the company through their social media network consisted with the company and its goals, products and services. This maneuver, although costly, yielded incredible return on investment that no one believed would be possible. A bold move, with bold results. The CEO doubles her salary. She's an inspiration to everybody, a little bit edgy from time to time but for the most part is extremely sensitive to utilizing a delightful economy of words enabling efficiencies with strong communication never sacrificing the opportunity to share affinity and loving energy with everyone. She grew up in a dysfunctional family, but feels that that dysfunctional environment and the coping skills he developed as a result, has given her toolsets to leadership sensibilities that she may otherwise not have had, a strong component to her successes throughout her history and in her future. She initially was put off by this extremely confident we will succeed no matter what attitude, but realized when having no other option than success, success will be the only option.

BETTY / Non-Union / Lead / Female / All Ethnicities / 18-33
Betty, the most loved of everyone at the job, who everybody trusts with his loving positive looking smile is infectious and brings joy to everyone. She grew up in a evangelical fundamentalist church, and from time to time could be heard singing worship songs on her lunch break. Most people call her little Miss innocent, but it's a part she plays all too well. Because the reality is anything but the truth. Her abstinence, waiting till marriage, keeping a virgin until she's married, the something that she achieves. But for some reason doesn't really talk to anyone about this issue other than her closest of friends. A couple of which were massage artists (Kate and Kristin) that only had females as clients. So after months of offering Betty free massages, that he finally agrees. Of course what she didn't realize is that the punch that they had at work somebody spiked, that somebody was Kate. Kate was very attractive to Betty. She loved the idea that she was a virgin and had never been touched by a man. At least that's what Betty says. When the 2 of them started giving her massage, it became apparent to Kristin what Kate's true intentions were. She medially pulled Kate to the side and said, stop it. That's all that needed to be said and Kate realized that she meant business. That night Kate and Kristin a very long talk, ... but Betty comes back the next day to get a massage and Kristin wasn't there. Betty starts getting a little bit friendlier than normal with Betty. But even though they're both wearing clothes, Betty kisses Kate, in the 2nd case gets way more passionate than the 1st. Christine now uses that situation to blackmail Betty. And to get information from Betty's company or she was good to tell Betty's family and her new fiancé. When it came down to it, they didn't do much more than what goes on in the dorms in college, but for Betty, just the thought of sin is sin. So to have actually acted on it was huge.
Wardrobe: White dresses, extremely conservative attire shoes no makeup, literally no makeup, with the innocence that's absolutely intoxicating.

Because they don't speak and you can do all the physical acting / making out you want, and be integral to the scene, but if you don't speak 99% of the time you're background.

Also I saw that post and that's a legit movie. The two female leads are Naomi Watts and Amanda Seyfried. I would make out with either of them.

Welcome to Hollywood. As I watch TV more and more, it surprises me how often there is a character in a scene who only nods or makes gestures or something in that vein, who you then realize is paid as background. (Also $148, its SAG contract).
