Well....to be fair "fleece" might be too strong of a word. What Ken "Whit" Whitman might be doing now could very well be a good deal for some, but regardless of that matter he is doing this with ill-gotten gains.
You see, Ken "Whit" Whitman is trying to get Atlanta area actors to give him money to film "demo reels" using equipment funded by the KoDT: LAS Kickstarter. Equipment that was supposed to have been rented, not bought, and equipment that Ken "Whit" Whitman has alleged he either didn't have or already sold.
Atlanta Actor Co-op is a new organization dedicated to producing quality reels, headshot, and audition tapes for up and coming actors. With over 50 members (cost is free to join), we have created over 9 demo reels in the last two weeks. We charge $50 per actor (minimum 2 actors) and create reals 2 minutes or less. We meet weekly at 6pm on Tuesday night.
Below is a recent reel we created for actors Starring Thomas Downing & Whit Whitman (strong language). If you are interested in a demo, or would like to join the AAC for free, please send me a personal message and I will add you to our secret group here on Facebook!"
Hmmm...poor spelling and grammar, shameless self promotion...sure sounds like Ken "Whit" Whitman. The whitless wonder is in half of the "Atlanta Actor Co-Op" videos and his acting is....well you be the judge.
You know, it almost seems like Ken "Whit" Whitman is profiting some off of these videos and using them to promote his own acting dreams. Of course, that is just one person's opinion.
Just makes a person, or at least this person, wonder that if Ken "Whit" Whitman has time to film and edit these shorts (around 12 minutes of footage), why couldn't he do the same for any of his video-based Kickstarters?
