The shoot is over, and you've made the edits, but your client wants more. In this video, find out what to do about it.
- So last chapter we talked about executing the job. Now for this chapter, we're going to talk about completing the job. And in the first lesson, we're going to talk about revisions. So you have your project, you're going through your edits, and you're going to have revisions. The first cuts, odds are it's not going to be perfect and the client's going to want changes or suggestions or this and that. And if you don't set some sort of rules, it could really messy really fast, especially if you have a perfectionist client who keeps thinking of little changes of how to tweak it here and there. So I like to set beforehand to have a limit of two to three revisions. This way, it makes the client think for a second, take a step back, and condenses their notes so that you're not getting an email every 20 minutes adding this or that. If you have a set limit, say three revisions, you can give them the first cut, they'll give a whole set of notes back, second, so forth and so on, and you have a hard stop so they can't keep adding tweaks. With that being said, you also want to then, if you have a three limit, charge extra if there's going to be more. That way, they can take it seriously and they don't think they have all your time because you have other projects to work on. So charge extra for any revisions after three. Make sure they're aware of that. And that should save you a lot of headache and time for perfectionists, because they're going to condense it all and you're going to have a better project. So your To Do item for this lesson is to bullet out your policy, whether it's two or three revisions, and then also come up with how much you're going to charge for any extra revision rates. Remember to think about the time it's going to take extra to render, to export, et cetera.
