Where can I find a (video) colorist for $80 hourly? The ones I’ve worked with are very high end & my current shop won’t pay more.

It’s not so much ‘high-end’ as it is, paying what that person’s skill and experience are worth. It probably wouldn’t be so much of an issue if the colorist/ post house thought they’d get other jobs from it. But since your shop is being cheap, I get the feeling they wouldn’t throw that person/post house regular work. Remind your people, you get what you pay for.

Yes try asking for someone who isnt very good, or really inexperienced. Come on man, we have enough trouble with agencies and clients lowballing and devaluing us, lets not nickel and dime each other. It costs what it costs.

Thank you. I need to present solutions, will look into this.

Many editors also do some basic color work. So try asking editors that are in your budget range. It won’t be as good, and you may need a little more oversight from a CD / art director, but it may help you hit your budget goal.

A good colorist is 10 times that. Have someone use the after effects tools. They are OK.

Send them to MPC or Co3 for $20 per minute. Lol.

Funny, sure, but place Im at is big and the volume /$ they’re taking away from agency work is impressive !!! I’ve never seen budgets like this, such minimal prep time or such lean Post but it’s happening. They’re still going to find people to do crazy things like 10 spots for 150k all in shooting next week or whatever. So I need a solution to color.

Anyone have experience with FDD at a B4 vs more of a specialized firm like A&M? I'd expect the latter to pay more, but curious if the deals worked on are actually different or there would be a diff vibe at an A&M tier.

Do any of you feel like the focus on mental health in schools is disingenuous and handled poorly? I feel as though the school district and teachers do not have the real training to contend with some of the students' issues. I also feel as though many schools are doing more damage than good by not follow real evidence-based strategies by clinical psychiatrists to help these children.

I’ve been promised a promotion. The discussion started many months ago before Covid. When the pandemic hit, I stepped up & worked insanely hard, above my level—it’s been praised and recognized, but not rewarded. I was told the promotion will be delayed for reasons not to do with me. Am I going to get strung along? Should I start looking? Can I ask for more money when it does come? I believe I deserve a lot more money, but I’m afraid of sounding greedy or entitled, especially during a pandemic.
