THE LATIN FILLER IS A KILLER!
A client was briefing me on a branding project for a family beach resort. Not a “Client From Hell,” persay, but a funny problem.
Me: The beach looks wonderful. We’ll really have to highlight the appeal of swimming in the sea.
Client: For sure, it’s pretty. But we’ll want to downplay actually swimming in it.
Me: Why’s that?
Client: Since purchasing the land, we discovered that the sea water at the beach flows from the Antarctic, so it’s ice cold.
Me: Oh, that’s no good. Still -
Client: …which tends to attract sharks.
I met with an elderly client to take PR photos for her company. We met at her house, and she opened the door wearing nothing but a towel. In the middle of awkward chit chat about how often I do photography, she drops the towel and proceeds to get dressed. In leopard-print leggings and a tank top.
It took her three-and-a-half minutes to get on the leggings. Trust me, I’m sure.
Client: I’d like a spark to travel down the shaft and explode when it gets to the tip.
The client punctuated this statement with a POP.
He was referring to an animated graphic he wanted for his logo, in which a spark or fuse followed the line from the first to last letter of the company name.
