I still say it's a great way to get experience. you just don't want to be abused by it. That's what this article is really targeting, the Producers and Production companies who abuse these people by not paying them fairly.

Working one or two jobs for free or low pay, great way to get experience and put a few credits on your resumé. Keep doing it over and over again, you're being taken advantage of.

We have had unpaid volunteers work with us on projects in the past and I'm sure we'll have them again in the future. But if they work on a regular basis, they get paid. The great thing about volunteers is that it's a great way to weed out the people who actually want to work vs those who are just looking to say they worked on a tv show or movie.
