Irregular Meditations

From the Mind of Mister Jones

“I paid for this commercial, I’ll read what I want”

I actually had a client hand me a script that was so bad (and had no mention of the business name until the end of the script) that I had to speak up and “suggest” changes to this 1st grade written script. The client then said, “I paid for this commercial, I’ll read what I want.”

“Go ahead and shoot the commercial, and let me see how you edit it and then I’ll send you a script.”

I actually had a client tell this to my co-worker. He seriously thought that if we shot something, put a few edits together and exported a :30 commercial of nothing, he could write a script based on the edits.
