It’s odd to think that you have to fend for yourself, especially when all the work you do is done collectively.
This can create a disconnect and will leave you with another problem to consider.
But it’s the way society functions: people living and working socially, yet fending for themselves.
You have an actor’s union, an industry made up of writers, technicians, editors, and producers, and you have agents and casting directors controlling the flow of work. So much social activity around your actor’s life and yet, there you’ll be…on your own.
It’s odd but real.
And it’s a problem.
