Protect yourself BEFORE you sign your next contract. When a big job comes along it’s natural to get excited and sometimes that excitement commits you to project before you’ve taken the time to properly ask enough questions to fully understand what you’re getting yourself into.

More often than not, that can lead to frustration and disappointment at best, a loss of money at worst.

While aimed primarily at editors and the Post Production side of things, Creative Professionals from all aspects of the industry can learn from Walter to be better prepared for their next big project. He reveals what Post Pros need to know and ask before taking on their next big post project. It’s knowledge gained in over 20 years experience cutting and supervising projects from broadcast to corporate. Along the way he’s “been there, done that” with just about every type of client situation imaginable.

So don’t get screwed by your next project, watch and be prepared to ask a lot of questions the next time you get a call to edit that next big project.
