Whether to Freelance or to Run a Company?
by featured blog contributor, Jeremy PinckertIn working as a director and also as an owner of a video production company for 10 years, there are many different categories of relationships I have experienced. There is the all-crucial client relationship. Then there’s the relationship between collaborating colleagues. There is a certain dynamic between myself and staff employees. And finally, there is the relationship I develop with vendors and freelancers. This last relationship with freelancers is one I want to look at from the perspective of my experiences from both sides of the coin.

Right now you are coming in somewhere in that range.” I'm seeing clients demands for video increasing but they don't always understand what they are purchasing as a creative buyer.

A Career Decision: Freelancing vs. In-House
I often joke about having been a pirate in a past life where I sailed the Seven Seas in the eternal quest for bounty, and while my camera has replaced my ship, that is the business approach that has prepared me today for a career in the media. At one point we all have to made a decision about how we want to work in the production industry and what types of lifestyles fit us the best.

Behind the Scenes: Visual Storytelling from the Jungles of Hollywood

See? It’s hard to even summarize it in a quick way - so imagine trying to shoot all this complex stuff in a couple of days.
