George, chill. . .10 dollars is their MINIMUM. So you just tell them you want $125 an hour, or whatever. See? It's fine.

You also need attenuators. That LAVA lear mike is probably real hot.

No offense, but I've done stuff like that as a one man band. It sucks, to be sure, but I've done it and been paid well for it. Ok, fine, I didn't actually interview her, but I set up a lav on her, and she read off a teleprompter attached to the cam. I still had to light her, though. Anyway, that's how some production companies work. Even real, legit ones. They just don't wanna splurge for that extra guy.

Josh, the only reason I posted that was because it said one man team.

I don't see a problem with that, it's just a one on one interview. How many people do you need to do this?

He's saying the grammar amused him, not the ad it self. One man TEAM, you see. Not one man band. It got me too. Oh, and he liked "Lava lear," or whatever.

It's no worse than the "Army of one" campaign the Army is using. Of course, I was an Army of one, and they called me an individual. I thought it was a good thing, but that isn't the way they made it sound. They implied it was a bad thing.

Anyways, I don't really see anything wrong with the term one man team, or one man crew, etc. If I was a woman, maybe...
