Seeking part-time free lance video editor for my internet show.
Needs to be low cost and I will keep you busy.
You can work from where you like. We will determine a system for upload and downloading the video clips.
We can collaborate over skype.
We work around your hours.
Please reach me at
What’s low cost to you? $50/hour? $500 for a 5 minute video? Please be more specific.
Birdcat, more than likely for free or near to it.
@Charles – I have seen way too many Craig’s List ads looking for video editors and offering $8/hour – I am fed up with the morons who think my producing their video for free will add value to my resume. At this point, the only pro bono work I do is for legitimate charities or non-profits (Boy Scouts, National Parkinson Foundation, Juvenile Diabetes, various flavors of cancer, Autism awareness, etc…).
What makes people think their idea, which is unrealizable without the help of talented individuals, is worth more than the talents of those individuals?
I clicked on the link as well. Mr. Heights, I believe you are a perfect example of how poor video can negatively effect a business. That’s like going out to buy a new pair of dirty torn pants to wear to a job interview. First impressions and all.
This is also the reason I am making the move beyond the industry I have been working in. The economy has taken its toll but going cheap on video is not a good move IMHO. There is still good work in the outdoor industry but many companies are looking to cut the fat a bit and video quality is one of those areas they are doing it in.
The end result is a poor company image and that does effect sales. Not to mention, who wants to have even the word of mouth going around of something like “Hey, check out this guy. He made my business look like crap for me real cheap.”
Of course the idea they have is you make their business look great for cheap but…
I saw this great T-shirt recently pertaining to video production. It said basically –
“Pick two – Fast, Cheap, Good.”
Since video production is my second job I base my minimum rates on how much I can make doing overtime for my main job plus my expenses. It’s helped me put things in perspective and not take jobs that turn out to be more headache than they’re worth. Now I only do theprojects I’m really interested in or the ones that actually pay the bills.
