For the next one? I'm going to negotiate pay depending on my responsibilities. If I'm expected to do everything (produce, direct, shoot, edit), then definitely ask for more pay. I want to put in an...

I'm going to do that for the next video for sure. Not this one, as it's nearing the end anyway.

What about other stipulations, like working hours and days? Is that just assumed, or should that be...

Whilst I agree with that to an extent, I think there needs to be a point where that needs to stop. At what point does it become less about the reel and more about the payment for services rendered?...

Ha, that's a fair point.

I suppose if the end product is close to what you envisioned as a director, it doesn't necessarily matter how you got there.

I have been told I have a quiet authority. I guess people relate to being a good director with someone who is constantly putting their foot down.

I've always seen directing as a filter towards a...

That's what I'm going to do. Also, now that they've introduced a contract into the fold, I'm going to demand a few things so I can safe guard me.




No, just that they are my client. It's a...

My partner has said on multiple occasions that they should be paying me more and that they take me for granted.

My opinion is that no one should work for free, but I know if I turned down free...

Directing & Assertiveness

I wanted to get peeps opinions about directing & assertiveness.

I've been told a few times that people say I'm not assertive enough when directing. I've never felt I didn't achieve what I set out...

Well, we've done the shoots. Still have yet to edit.

It got a bit tense before the second shoot that we planned, which was more of narrative to fit within the bands performance video. I was doing...

Good advice. I'm doing a performance video shoot with them next month, so if problems arise then, I will just say I don't want to be a hired hand and see where that goes.

I'm fine with being told...

I had the same experience on the last music video with this band. The lead singer came in after I had edited something together and we worked on it as a team. I valued that input because I was at a...

My personal goal is to build a portfolio that I am proud of. That shows me off as a serious director that I can then use as my calling card.

I'm always up for collaborating and having suggestions...
