Scary!

L.I.U., ‘SPOOKY CABIN’

Alex XXXXX (dir.) is casting Spooky Cabin, a Long Island University (C.W. Post campus) student film. Brian XXXXX, casting dir. Shooting Feb. in NY.

Seeking—Father: middle-aged, Caucasian, who gets a break on a reality show; Teenage Boy: 16-18, Caucasian; Male: early 20s, Caucasian.

Email pix & résumés to XXXXX.com. Sides will be available at a later time. No pay, but copy, credit, meals, and travel provided.

How can this cabin be spooky when there are no babes, no breasts, no thongs, no "brief non-sexual" nudity? I'm afraid dear readers, that this poor filmmaker is lost in the woods on the tasteful outskirts of Crazy Town - completely out of touch with the usual "scary" movie fodder - and only a screaming naked co-ed can help him/her find their way back to exploitative scripts, and thus, sanity.

Aw, what happened! They were so tactful in the body of the ad, but the heading lacks the same finesse.

About Compensation...

To all you people who want to hire models and other artists, etc., without paying them fairly, or AT ALL...

Don't you realize that you will get a much better response from the type of people you need (read: quality) if you PAY them? No one wants to work free; you cannot reasonably expect anyone to. It isn't fair to us. We work hard to hone our craft, and deserve to be compensated when performing a job for you. I cannot believe the number of ads I would have answered (for which I probably would have been hired) if only there had been a reasonable compensation rate instead of "No pay"!

Please, people...DO offer reasonable compensation if you want someone worth hiring to answer your ads!

Thank you.

I think Gabby is in LOVE!
