There are a good number of novice filmmakers posting "castings" and asking for producers/directors and investors. Casting is for actors - and not a place for this. Further, I have submitted accidentally - because sometimes there are roles of directors for films about the business - admittedly in a rush (as a lot of us are trying to submit) I didn't realize this was someone trying to find someone to fund their film. When the email to follow up and I explain to them I am not interested in funding (further affirming they have no idea what they are doing as they expect the producer to cut them a check) I am met with rude and unprofessional email telling me I shouldn't waste their time if I don't want to fund their project. Please please please put a note (if there isn't one already i am overlooking) telling these people to NOT post castings if they are not looking for on camera talent.
