Yep – I ALWAYS make sure prospective clients realise the time even 30 seconds of video takes to produce. I had a site meeting today and gave them a cheap quote of £240 and they almost fell over. That’s £240 an hour!!! They then told me I needed to arrive any 1pm, for the event that starts at 7pm, so start to finish probably out by nine pm, so that’s an 8 hour non-stop day and that’s before I’ve even edited anything. Unrealistic expectations kill many jobs.
