Re: What is right thing to do?

Everyone here really is a very nice person, I can tell from the comments.

Now my thoughts, the guy ripped you off already on footage and editing style and then wants YOU to make sure HIS client gets what she wants. That takes some serious onions !!!

A friend and fellow videographer would have sent that lady to you, so you could give her what she wants, because he can't. He might have got a hold of you and asked for a finder fee or made sure he was going to be the second shooter if you sold her, but he would have slid the lady to you out of courtesy of your friendship and the desire to make sure the lady got what she wanted.

Time for new second shooter and this one keep as far away from your business as possible. Anyone who rips you off isn't your friend. Find the new shooter and then just quit interacting with this one. The more you do, the more he is going to cost you in the long run.

Everybody deserves a second chance, help him out with the job he booked but before you do that sit down with him and confront him about his behavior. Tell him that you find it unacceptable and why and if it happens again that you have to terminate the co-operation.

Just the fact that you come here asking for opinions shows you are a too nice guy :) You don't have to take this kind of crap from nobody. Just tell him straight, not always easy but the best way.
