Hey everyone. Need a bit of help. I am doing a Sony Pictures feature and have done others for them in the past. They are telling our UPM that they don't want to do a three day week on equipment rental now even though every other time they have. They want to pro rate my weekly rate because apparently all the other crew with gear (sound mixer, Key Grip, etc) have done this pro rate deal. I don't do that. I could use some help from others who have done a Sony job this year who have done a standard three day deal or similar with them so I have examples. I don't need advice or want a discussion here. I just need real jobs and people who are willing to say so so I can put it back in their face to help stop this practice. I can't do anything about the other knuckle headed crew members who gave in but I won't. Email me with your details. Thanks.
