I filmed at event for a client, charging only 200€ for the filming. The client asked if I would do the editing as well. I told them my rate was 600€ with a week’s deadline. They declined.
Two weeks later, they got in touch and asked if that offer was still on the table.
Me: Of course! Just the video I filmed?
Client: That one, and a video covering another event.
They sent me that video and it was terrible. It wasn’t even white-balanced.
Me: I can do both, but this second video is really bad. Honesty, it will take a while to make it acceptable.
Client: No problem, so long as we have it on Wednesday.
It was Monday at 7:30.
