So sick of all these production companies and "low budget" film people demanding my movie reel ,links to my work, who have I worked with, yet YOU have not done anything at all or if you have done nothing "big" either. You have zero experience making a film yet you expect everyone around you to have "major movie credits" and work for peanuts but YOU have not done a damn thing anyone gives a crap about or worse nothing at all! Where is YOUR fucking reel? Let's see YOUR blank ass IMDB! How about giving some one with years of experience but no "credits" a shot since you haven't really done shit either? Or is your ego so inflated that you think you think your "break out" shitty movie deserves a PA, Camera Operator or Sound Guy that has worked on fucking AVATAR. Eat a bag of dicks or post what YOU have done,oh ya you can't, because you haven't done squat. Just be cool about hiring someone if your a newbie too! And why do want you want the same sound or look as everyone else anyway? You may get some unexpected point of views by hiring someone with a new style that isn't already on everything. If your are an expert film maker yourself then by all means hiring that way makes sense but your not so, stop acting like your cool cause your an A-hole . Bye ;-)

I'm reminded of the famous story about the Oscar-winning actress Shelly Winters. She went in for a casting interview in the late 1960s, and the director chatted to her about the part and then said, "have you been in any major films before?" She reached into her (very large) purse and pulled out an Oscar, and said, "I won this for The Diary of Anne Frank." Then she paused dramatically and reached in and pulled out a second Oscar and continued, "and I won this in 1965 for A Patch of Blue." Then she stared the young director right in the face and said, "But enough about me. What have you done?"

I'm always kind of galled when I get grilled on the work I've done, and I'll tell them, hey, I've got about 400 credits on IMDB. But the IMDB credits are misleading, because they don't include about 2/3 of my work that weren't TV series or feature films, like commercials or music videos or industrial films or tons of other forgotten stuff. And some of these are Millennials that are just a few years out of college.

Hey, more power to him. At least he's insisting on some money, and not perpetuating the myth that you can get lowball sound for just an IMDB listing and craft service.

(On the other hand, his website says he's also a DP, director, and still photographer... his demos include things he's edited, sort-of... and he offers an "I need something produced" service for a flat $300.

(So maybe he'll be able to make ends meet for a long enough time that he'll be able to figure out exactly what he wants to do.)

Yeah, the nerve - who wants to pay the rent?

Everybody knows that the best sound mixers live in a van down by the river…

SMH…

I thought I'd add this gem. Why be a boom op when you can pretend to be one. 85 bucks to stand around seems like a deal when the mixer has to bring equipment and only get paid 140.

Re "DRM" on deferred tracks:

On a few occasions when I wasn't sure of the production company, I've had the producer sign an acknowledgement that I retain copyright on the audio master, including all derivative uses and reproduction, until mutually agreed payment. This is essentially the same copyright that record companies keep on their music. (Plus of course some boilerplate where the producer personally guarantees his right to sign for the production company, etc)

I've never had to assert that copyright -- it's more a fear thing -- but it has gotten me paid. Or, on one occasion with a dicey producer, chased him out of the room.

This isn't my standard practice; I'd rather work for people I can trust, and extend that trust fairly easily. But it has protected me. However, IANAL.

Two shotgun mics and no boom poles? Interesting technique. I guess with a 5 day schedule in which to shoot a Feature Film, there probably won't be enough time to extend or collapse a pole, just stand off the frame line and hold the mics in your hands?

It's pretty up there this time of year, but you'll end up hating it if you work on this shoot.

If they're this specific on gear, you wonder how they could be so ignorant of rental rates.

I'd tell them, "sure, I can give you all that for $200/day. But of course, Batteries and Media will be $600/day, and we can't do the job without those."
