Tales from the Edit Bay! : Cmd+Edit 032

Command Edit Podcast shares stories about editing clients

Storytime!

We had a guest fall ill this week so rather than force them to record with us, we decided to share a few rough experiences we've had with past edit projects.

There are lessons to be learned from every job, especially the ones that present challenges and don't go as well as you'd like.

Note: We are not necessarily talking just about "clients from hell" and venting our frustrations. These are some of our most difficult projects that we've been involved in that we've taken away some prized knowledge to aid us in the future.

So gather 'round the fire and listen to our tales!

Your Survival Guide to Hellish Clients : Cmd+Edit 017

Nick MontgomeryComment
Post Production Survival Guide to Clients from Hell

This episode is a little something Josh and I have been working on that we like to call: The Survival Guide to Hellish Clients.

Here are some common difficult client situations that you will most likely find yourself in. And some ways that you can avoid/escape them.

SURVIVAL SCENARIOS COVERED:

  • What to do when you clash creatively with the client/director
  • What to do when the client won't pay on time
  • When you don't get the performance you need from the on-screen talent
  • How to negotiate with tight deadlines
  • When work goes beyond the original scope of the project (aka "Scope Creep")
