As a rule of thumb, for a top quality professional result you can expect to spend altogether about 1 to 3 hours of editing for each finished minute of the program. The shooting ratio, total footage shot compared to finished program length, can range from 3:1 up to 10:1, depending on great many factors and your run of luck <grin>.

I'm sure he would, indeed, like to attract as much traffic to the site as possible but from potential clients not other videographers. I have a fellow videographer friend who took his samples down because after a little investigating the majority of his traffic was steming from videography forums. In reality he was "paying" for other videographers to see his work. His clips are now password protected...only real potential clientel can gain access.

You'd be amazed at how much bandwidth posting a link on a public forum can chew up. As many "members" as we have here there are many, many more that are guests.

My point too

Thats exactly the reason why I pulled my clips from my site. I found out that every other videographer was pulling clips from my site.

Now I only deal direct and with a demo cd - its gives you the opportunity to wow them while you are in their company - otherwise uncle bob comes along and views your work and says "oh, I can also do that and I'll charge you half!"

Also just my .02

I did 4 free ones for friends and family and friends of friends with little or no budget.. Totally free, so if it was terrible is better than having nothing.. Basically I just let them know that I wanted the practice..:)
