I had a guy ask me if I want to do a lot of shooting him and get paid in "stocks" of the corporation he's starting. No thanks.

How is it that none of these people are members here and have seen their posts and come to defend them? Seems like it woulda happened by now.

Major Spanish Market TV commercial wants to STEAL your music with your permission (elevator music!) rather than spend a few bucks for royalty free elevator music!!!


Need music for Telemundo Commercial

Reply to: job-141454137@craigslist.org

Need UNPUBLISHED music for a commercial to be aired on Telemundo TV.
Music needs to be background music, preferably elevator music.

It will not pay but will give the artist a chance to have their music on a commercial and of course you will get a copy of the commercial.
Please either email samples or send cd's to:

Donelli- Commercial Music Dept.

What really aggravates me about that post is that he says he won't pay instead of he can't pay or at least right now. It looks like the cheap ass virus has spread worldwide!

Now you can do corporate trade show videos plus DVD authoring. Full end to end production, post, delivery and not even get paid for use of your gear let alone your time.

Shooting, Editing and Authoring a DVD Needed

Reply to: gigs-141442758@craigslist.org
Date: 2006-03-13, 9:41AM EST


Need someone to shoot, edit and author a promo video. No compensation, however you can use it for your portofolio. This video is for a cosmetics company, and will be broadcast at the trade show, and on the company's website, where your name will be posted. Also on the website with a link to your site. So it's a good opportunity to get your name out there.

If interested, please contact us.

This pays better than Craig's "mastercard" one. What shocked me was that A) James did not post it first, and B) it was on Mandy and not Craigslist.

Atlanta rental house rate for a PD-170 over a weekend is $250. Of course, I have room to talk. I paid this for the day to a high school student, but I supplied all the stuff. It was 8 hrs. No reel required (I just get to swear a bit during post).

I'm sure I'll start another flame war, but that's not that bad. $250 for one day.

Oh, sorry. Mileage not included in said fee. In that case, they can kiss my ass for $250 a day. Mileage, tape stock, clients pay for, says me, or I include it in a higher fee than was originally quoted.

Even with gas prices where they are, I could drive up there, shoot it, grab a room for the night, and make it home with something. Getting away from the family circus for a couple days is always nice, but I really need a bit more to make it worth that drive.

Well, I have no circus, and I would actually try to put together some sort of living. Different strokes, I guess.

It's coming back around to doing just that. In the meantime, I still shoot whatever I can, for whoever. Down the road, it usually pays off.
