A couple guys were willing to pay $150 for up to 10 hours work and expected me to use my own equipment and carry my own insurance. One guy expected me to be available with no notice or he'd never use me again.

With hundreds of hungry students needing work I guess Arizona is not a good market for helpers or 2nd shooters.
I can second your comment Tom. I am seeing stupid rates from shooters. Seriously (hope no one gets mad) but I've seen $250 for providing 2 HD professional cameras, wireless lapel mics, lighting kits, softboxes (and much more) for an all day interview.

Re: Do you really need an assistant?

Steve - how can I say this? That's embarrassing!

Fortunately I was still able to go back in and fix it. Thanks for catching this in time for me to make the correction edit.

The good part is at :20 seconds.
