    I'm with you, Patryk, as far as that goes. I graduated from Oregon State University with a 3.97, got only one B during my last term (ironically in screenwriting, so I'll be happy to prove that guy...

    Definitely, of course! On my first music video shoot I didn't really know anything, I just had a creative vision for the piece itself and really needed help from the DP to bring that to life. I...

    I think Ilauzirika nailed it. I personally respect anyone who at least goes out there and does SOMETHING, anything, instead of sitting on their butts and doing absolutely nothing at all. Not to...

    That was really truly terrible, I'm sorry. I can forgive the home-made effects and makeup, I mean whatever they were trying, but the acting was just awful and presumably if this is a trailer that's...

    Actually definitely take the product placement advice to heart. I would have never guessed before I made my first feature that a small budget feature would be able to get such a ridiculous amount of...

    My sister so far says the UCLA extension course she's taking on screenwriting is not only not very helpful or informative, but that the guy isn't very qualified to teach it, either. I don't know who...

    lol, I even cut out the first one of those. In my story, they're already together, but it's a lot more about another story element as well so it's not quite so simplistic.

    To someone who can afford to part with the money, you should be looking for 1 investor, a lot easier and it's only $150,000. That's not very much money. It's not like you're trying to raise $5...

    I always just tell my cinematographer how much I have for them in the budget, that's the rate, there isn't any negotiating because I don't make a killing off what I do. It's up to the client, really....

    Great story, haha, I love it. You did the right thing, and I love the way you ended your post. Sometimes, you need to move on and never look back.

    Doug you are definitely right about that. It's one of those things where, like you said, once you are in that system, the costs simply go up. The pay grade goes up and it doesn't mean that the...

    Huh

    Well, you should always get as much as you can, but it's funny when you say "insult." I consider $300/day to be the going rate for a good DP on corporate / industrial work, at least. I won't pay more...
