The technologically challenged management is probably wondering why none of the people who show up for an interview have film in their cameras.

Ha! The KC Star management wonders how they can distract the people who show up, in order to steal their camera.

You'll get the minimum wage job IF your commercial portfolio is good enough, that means you'll already have (and provide for this job) about 35K in computer, cameras and lighting gear you earned while billing $125 to $275 per hour - the going rate for successful mid-range commercial shooters. But I bet they have to turn applicant away.....
