So the earlier feedback was accurate? You did poorly communicating? I don’t see why you couldn’t ask the account person to “put in a good word” for you re: the recent shoot.

Say thanks and that you’ll let your boss know.., he/she will probably follow up and hope that he/she will give you great praise

Nothing wrong with getting feedback after something went good or bad. Why don’t you setup a de-brief and ask your boss to come so he can listen in?

I did some animatics with a particular account person and it went TERRIBLE. She gave my boss some pretty lengthy feedback about my communication with the team. I just recently wrapped another project with the same account person and she kept thanking me for how well the shoot went and how smooth working with me was. Would it be bad to ask her (with no pressure attached) to let my boss know how well it went this time? I want him to know I’ve really turned things around and listened to the feedback I received

Yes, ask the account person to send you that positive feedback over email, then forward to your boss.

Producer friends who hire editors / deal with budgets: I’m a freelance editor currently charging 1200 / day (base before OT). I get this rate fairly consistently but do have some clients and projects that can’t afford this and if I love the project I will sometimes work for less. I thought this seemed pretty reasonable based on my experience (senior level). But I just heard of another editor charging $1500-$2000 a day. Is this a sustainable? Am I vastly under-charging? Or are they full of it? 🤯
