So I got an email that CNN is looking for a fill in op for 4 weeks. But they are only paying $400 a day for 7 hours! Hand held guys in reality out of NYC are getting upwards of $600 ~ $650... COME ON GUYS!!! That's ridiculous... I make that on a dolly all day plus the overtime kicks in on an episodic, which I'm sure they are skating you right out the door at 7, so no overtime money.
The other thing the sucks about it is that they own the gear, so not even a kit rental to makeup for the sucky rate.
Believe me guys, your gonna work a lot harder doing those slow moves that should be on a dolly and fighting the heavy fiberline tethered to you.
Good luck with that!
