Joining the ranks of those being laid off due to Covid, I’m now looking to go freelance. Having worked as an Agency Producer my entire career, but jobs now being scarce I’m looking to broaden my horizon and also seek work in Production Companies. For those of you who are doing both, or did the switch, what did you find most different or challenging going from Agency to Production Company side? Was there anything that threw you off or that you hadn’t anticipated? Any regrets? Pitfalls to avoid?

Looking for advice. My movers damaged my work monitor which my company provided to me in March so I can work remotely due to COVID-19. Item: Dell UltraSharp 34 Inch Curved USB-C Monitor: U3419W. It is around $700/800. The movers are not taking accountability and I do not have movers insurance. Will this reflect poorly on me? I moved Thursday of last week and ‘return’ to work tomorrow. I feel it’s best to explain the situation, as it’s imperative I have a fully functioning remote work set up..
