It's happened before and it'll happen again!

A world revolving around secret deals, nepotism and finding "The Next Big Thing". To get anywhere in the industry, you've usually got to work for free, sell your soul and be a part of projects that maybe don't sit so well with your ideals. You may have to work on low budget B-Movie crap on par with The Room or Birdemic, but that's just how it works. Nobody ever announced "I'm going to be an actor!" and won an Oscar the following week. You have to put in the time to prove your worth, your hunger, and that you belong there more than anyone else, and this means starting at the low end. The low end is a universe away from top tier, multi-million dollar film-making, the budgets are maybe one hundredth the size, and there are thousands of small-time actors all vying for a piece of the action. So as a result, a big part of starting out in films at this level in the industry is having very few projects to go on. You may work for 3 months of the year on two films, but that's it, and while your agent is looking out for you, they've got 100 other clients all wanting that same role. You need another source of income or some more performances to fill your reel, and it's this that sometimes pushes people to the seedy underbelly of the industry. Whether it be for money or "It's a role! Why the hell not!?", it happens every day, and some of those that make the decision to enter the adult orientated side of things will one day be working with major directors and competing for Oscars. It's happened before and it'll happen again!
