When triple bidding directors do you ask for their post input (editors and finishing partners)? Right now each director prefers different partners and I have to parallel path bidding… I don’t need to triple bid post….

FK NO! Sorry, I’m hiring a Director for 1 thing! To DIRECT! If those 3 directors I’m triple bidding have some input on editors - I listen, and will bid them if they are appropriate. But I generally go with my creative’s wishes. As for finishing - that’s really my decision - to get what we need at the best price. Been doing this for 20+ years and it always depends on the situation and the budget. My current production - we bundled the shoot and the post - with heavy VFX - with the same prod. co. through delivery.

Just put holds on the various editors, then see who wins your bid and book their preference

Yeah this is pretty normal. That I’d get put on hold and in some cases I know it’s down to the director getting picked or not. It’s just important to be transparent about that up front.

No. Unless there is a really good reason. I bid through the shoot. If they want to stay involved, great. But at some point the agency and client will have to align, and that will run counter to the Agency Director relationship. Brutal in the US, much different in the EU.

Totally agree! Much different in Europe. Normally the director stays involved through final film.

I generally ask for input. But usually go with my personal favorites for post. For Complex VFX jobs, I almost always use my Director recommendation for vfx partner.

Question about what’s realistic: My boss, vp of marketing, is dead set on working with an agency who can produce multiple videos over the course of several small shoots so that we can iterate on what’s working. From my experience, this would cost a lot more than our budget (80k) and would ultimately be more expensive than one larger shoot with more deliverables. Videos are short, 10s or less and without a real narrative — more just for a sizzle reel kind of thing. Thoughts? Nyc based.
