It's time to scare up some production horror stories! Just in time for Halloween, San Diego Chapter of MCAI is having a monster of a meeting to dig up the terrible tales of shoots gone wrong, clients gone crazy, and the various gremlins and goblins that get in the way of good projects. Come view some funny media industry videos and share stories of the amazing and insane things client say and do. The best part... you can learn how to handle the kooky clients before they go kooky on you.
We've all experienced those nightmare clients who do things that seem like they might send you to an early grave. Let's all tell our stories and gain the benefit of someone else's experience so we can all be better prepared to handle whatever might be thrown our way.
We'll have a panel of seasoned professionals to start the conversation. Please come armed with you own stories- And add to the horror-fest!!
Topics may include:
1. I can't believe the client asked for this. (and, here's what I did about it.)
2. The worst thing an actor ever did on a shoot was this. (and, here's how we handled it.)
3. We once had a crew person who did this. (and, here's what happened.)
4. One time as a freelancer, the producer actually asked me to do this. (and, here is how I dealt with the request.)
5. This didn't happen to me, but I heard about a situation someone else had to deal with.
6. The worst or strangest or costliest thing that ever happened to me on a project was this. (and, here's what I think we can all learn from it.)
Location - TBD (if you have any suggestions for a spooky soiree, please make your suggestion to our communications director.)
