I get a lot of requests for using my Masks or props in movies mostly independent self funded projects and I feel I should address this. While most of us may be open to give away our Art for these film projects it doesn't mean you should. Why not?
Most of these films are privately funded and if their Sony cameras, film, rigging equipment or headphones etc. needs to be paid for, why shouldn't your art be since its one of the most integral part of the film. Its just doesn't make sense to me that if they need that prop that bad for the main character a murderer or whatever they should at least pay for the most interesting part of character that will be shown. I don't believe that Artists should just shell out their craft like it was nothing on the empty promise and "possibility" of the film getting any sort of worthy attention. If indeed that film will be that successful or will be seen by many, then it justifies the reason for your Art to be paid for since its the meat of the
