      Can’t wait to see what Wolf sez about this one.

      Why not just spend $2,500 for a professionally made video in the first place (some will be more pricey, some less, but I’d do it for that price – depends on the client).

      First off, I was suspect when I saw this thing was shot like this. I’m with ‘Cat in that you couldn’t have shelled out a few drachmas to get your promo professionally shot? Then you expect filmmakers to rush out and create high-end videos for you to use as you see fit for free under the unlikely promise of a $5,000 cash prize? Is that US, Canadian, Austrailian or Hong Kong Dollars? When are you going to (if ever) pay off? You may be a legit business, but this thing reeks to high heaven of scam. Potential participants beware.

      What do you think people would say if you asked ten contractors to build you a house and you’d pay for the one you like?

      Wait bad question, a contractor could sell his house to somebody else. A commercial made for you is worthless unless you actually pay me.

      I want a union and legislation to ban this crap and the amateurs that fall for it. You need certification to call your self a plumber, and I got a good plunger, you don’t see me hanging up a Plumbing service sign….

      Didn’t say I was gonna organize one… lol!

      but seriously, is it too much to ask that there at least be an exam before a business license gets issued?

      I don’t know if this is the kind of thing he is talking about … although I think he may not all above board here.

      There’s one born every minute, but for those who would be swayed, we have the protection of Wofgang πŸ˜‰
