I had a funny conversation with a friend where he wanted to see his work at a screening premiere which was for a fun competition. Thing is, everyone has to pay tickets for the event including people who has created work that will be shown.
He was saying how that felt like such a rip off to him considering without people like him who volunteered there time to create the work the screening would have nothing to show. I guess in many ways that is true and at the same time itâ€™s not too unusual.
For myself, I guess if it is a non profit event then I would be more inclined not to mind too much as they need to make up the cost for things like the venue. If it is a for profit event though that is a completely different story in my view.
