Hi folks,

 I was speaking with another operator today sharing a call we had both gotten and I remembered the dreaded group text issue that is so prevalent with the Iphone. A text went out asking "What's your rate?"

 

That's not a problem if your cool with just responding to that text without knowing who it's from, or what the specifics are (i.e. Operating on a boat with an Arri BL4 and 1000' mags with a Cooke 10-100 and 6x6 Mattebox, or studio job with an Epic with a 14mm prime and nothing else for a 10 minute music video) BUT, if it's a group text, Your answer will go to EVERYONE that the text was sent to.

 

better to just Call the number and speak to someone in person.

 He and I agreed it should be shared, although many wouldn't just blurt out the rate...I hope.

 

Have a great weekend.
