    Default Wanted: Video Producer

    Hi.
    Having decided to stick to what we do best; writing soundtracks, we are looking for someone with CGI knowledge to take a Title track video to the next level.
    The production work is unpaid, although you will be credited in the titles and info pages for what you have done.

    If you think this is for you, please get in touch.

    Kind Regards,
    Lu

    Unpaid work? Sounds all very charitable to me. Why aren't you prepared to pay the going rate? I always telling my mortgage I'll stick their name plaque on my house, but they always insist on cash. Go figure!

    Old "Wardour Street" saying: "Any fool can work for nothing and only a fool does".

    The production work is the hardest job on any team. I can understand people working as "runners" for nothing, in order to get a foot on the ladder. I can understand people working as a "third assistant" on sound or camera crews likewise. (BTW just because I understand it, doesn't mean I agree with it.) ...but someone with knowledge of CGI, working unpaid on a production..? If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys, if you pay nothing you get nobodies.

    You should at least be able to offer some sort of minimum wage plus expenses.

    Ok - I was a bit huffy there. Apologies to the op - it was the muliple post pushed me over the edge.
    That and I had just spent ages chasing and banning spammers.

    I apologise for causing any distress. I can be a stroppy mother.

    Mark.

    Why are you apologising Mark?

    We get at least one request like this a week, usually more. "Can you work for me, for free. We'll put your name in the credits but you won't get any money."

    Although, to be fair, normally the posters make the effort to show who they are, give a link to their website, show a short CV of stuff they've done in the past, give an outline of their current project. This person hasn't even bothered to do that, although he/she has cleverly chosen to sign off as with a girl's name, thus guarenteeing some interest.

    Two identical posts, in two different sections, this one "Pimp the Link" being totally inappropriate since there is no link!

    No need for an apology.

    Hmmm. Well this is all getting out of hand now clearly.

    I will lock this thread and leave the other.

    As for the apology, regardless of the rights and wrongs and did act in haste.
