Yeah, this wasn't a residual check like actors get if they show reruns of TV show. I was behind the camera and they are still paying off my agreed upon salary.

I did once play a non-union orangutan for the woman who did the Lion King on Broadway. That involved being a foam and straw costume in NYC in August. Now, I know you wondering, I bet the studio was air-conditioned right?. No, it was not. Good times.

When the union rep showed up they would shuffle us (me and the 7 orangutans I was chained too) off and lock us in some back room for few hours and throw in some Sprites.
