I got a gig directing some videos for online classes. Very simple stuff, one camera filming some talking heads. talking.
The client had approved the script, the art direction, style, casting, etc. Everything was fine.
I delivered the first cut and the client approved everything and gave a lot of compliments.
I sent the final cut and got another call from the client:
Client: Uh… my boss doesn’t like it. Can we redo everything?
Me: We can, but you’ll have to pay me for the extra work.
At this point, she got very, very upset. Then she called my boss complaining about my attitude.
We have another meeting next week. It’s gonna be a very, very long week.
