    I just finished an indy feature and am now hiring a colorist and sound mixer.
    Both individuals live out of town. Curious how other filmmakers allocated those payments fairly?
    Thanks for looking.

    Not sure what you mean by "allocated those payments fairly".

    ya know - I thought maybe I wasn't being clear - thanks for asking.
    What I meant - since both these individuals are out of town - and I don't know them personally and will not be meeting them personally - what would be a fair way of paying them for their work?
    Half up front half - the other half when they deliver, etc. I was curious to hear from other colorist or sound mixers if they were working in this situation how they would expect to be paid.
    Hope that's clearer

    You'll need to work this out with both the colorist and mixer directly. It's not unusual for them to request non refundable deposits and require full payment before delivery.
    Post production is not an afterthought!
