If you've ever thought about going into media production, you should watch the video on this post first. I actually haven't had many examples of this happen to me, but there's definitely a vibe in that direction.
Actually, I tend to scare people off right away so this doesn't happen to me. I tell potential clients exactly how expensive it's going to be and that there are plenty of low-end videographers out there if they're just looking for someone to hold a camera and press record.
I'm not sure, but I think they tend to go that route--or sometimes take my suggestion that for that price they could ask their Uncle Earl to do it for them.
I find myself reminding people of the Production Triangle often. Sometimes they get it. Sometimes they don't.
