Video tape Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show for FREE????. I know someone who made tens of thousands of dollars doing these. This is a major "upper class" event. Of course she has a list of MUST HAVES for your gear and it's days of shooting too. Of course all that dog video is critical for my reel.

You should have thousands of dollars of gear, spend hours of your time across days . . . and get paid less than a dog walker!

Videographer for Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

Reply to: gigs-272148773@craigslist.org
Date: 2007-02-02, 12:43AM EST


The 131st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is almost here and I need a videographer. Must have access to a 3C DV camera (Sony VX2000, Canon XL1, 24P, etc) lighting kit and proper sound (boom mic or lav).

It all begins on Monday, February the 5th. I need footage of Angel on a Leash, a cocktail soiree to benefit the Westminster Kennel Club Therapy Dog Program.

And from Friday, February 9th to Wednesday February 14th, I need a few hours of footage from different events during the Westminster Week including the main event, which takes place at Madison Square Garden on the 12th and 13th.

This is a non-paying gig (free meals and transportation included). Great opportunity to use footage for job reel and free up close and personal access to one of the biggest animal events in the world. And you'll be working side by side with pet expert, Charlotte Reed.

If interested, please contact Katie at 917-627-9597

Well with tickets starting at 45.00 dollars to 145.00 you think they could actually give you some money. Although you video could get some press here http://www.westminsterkennelclub.org...eed/index.html......... but that would mean your video going to the dogs............. Sorry I just had to make that joke.

So for $100 a day you need to be "on call" for all 8 days! You're supposed to NOT book any other jobs, no guarantee they're using you that day, provide your own gear so you MIGHT make $100 for the day!

Now this MAJOR PEEVES me. VIBE, a commercial publication/media group, is looking for "interns" EXPERIENCED editors to work nearly half a work week WITHOUT PAY. I can understand the "make my movie for free" folks but when commercial entities want experienced part time FREE labor there's something seriously WRONG.

Why do I even bother?

You know, it would be cheaper just to hand him my 10 tapes and let him do the video here in ATL. Not even in my area.

There's ridiculous and there's ridiculous. For the honor of shooting the auditions for free you can then work on the film for free. After doing my dishes with your sink and soap you will be rewarded with the privilege of throwing out my garbage.

Do Ridiculous low ballers count?

A 2 maned camera wedding shot and edited for $500 in NYC no less! He'd probably have to book/shoot/edit 6-8 weddings a month just to cover his costs. I should contact him and ask what cameras he's using because I may be interested in them when he has to sell them to pay the rent and credit card bill. He must be borrowing a car too because he certainly can't make the monthly payments or a weekend rental at those prices. Of course they're likely to have very high hours plus he'd be using them as decks too.

Attention all June, July and August Brides...The time is now to start thinking about booking a wedding videographer for your wedding. The closer it gets to the warm weather the harder it will become to book a videographer who will give you good quality work at a price you can afford.

My package includes:

Up to eight hours of filming
Two manned cameras to film your wedding and reception
Editing using State of the Art Software.
Two edited DVD's.

PRICE: $500.00

Please email me for demos.

Thank you and Congratulations!

This is exactly the kind of cr*p that shouldn't be permitted. He's offering "credit, copy" on "Commercial, Corporate/Industrial" !!!! Of course you need to supply YOUR OWN edit system (computer and software costing thousands of dollars)!
