A client contracted me to provide computer graphics for a video production because their previous vendor “wasn’t giving them enough attention.”
They cancelled a meeting to discuss the parameters of the project. Afterwards, I contacted them multiple times by phone to set up another meeting. No calls were returned. After all this, they cancel the second meeting we had arranged when I was initially contracted.
The client finally called to say that they were upset that I missed the deadline to submit a budget.
I told them that without having had a meeting or so much as a conversation, I know no idea of the budget or even the full scope of the project. The client (impatiently) gave a list of items over the phone that they want a bid for. The bid is completed and sent to them after a couple of hours.
The client then called to cancel the project, stating that I “wasn’t giving them enough attention.”
