A well known client that has given me a mixed bag of gigs
gives me this gem:
(friday) Client: I've got a gig for you Saturday evening; A
buddy of mine needs you to film his event or 3 hours and edit
it down for a promo piece. He'll give you $75...er actually, I
think I can get him to up to $100.
Sorry, I'm not that broke. He knows what my rates are, but
insists on trying to do these jobs that aren't even worth the
trouble. These clients typically want a million changes when
it gets into post production as well.
