Should You Give Them the RAW files? | Jon Vulpine Podcast Project Freelance

    • Careers

If you want to know how to get started shooting music videos for both independent and SIGNED bands, this is the podcast for you. Jon Vulpine is an award-winning director and editor with over 10 years of experience creating content all over the world. He has sharpened his skills in the music video industry over the last 7 years with a passion for striking visual content, coffee and loud cars.  Jon and I have a lot in common. His friend asked if he could film a music video for his friend's band and Jon, who didn't have a clue what he was doing, took it on, which is what I did as well, for my own band.  For example, let's use something you might be more familiar with, like your car! So, you have the title to your car, right? That means that you own that car. BUT, should someone get ahold of the title, which is literally a tiny piece of paper, by the way, they can take that title into the DMV and LEGALLY change the name on the title, which effectively transfers your ownership to them. So! Your RAW files are the title to your film/photo. If you give someone your RAW footage they can do whatever they want with it; edit it, claim it as theirs, sell it, etc. You wouldn't want someone to take the title to your car, so why would you let them take your footage? Just because a video isn't tangible doesn't mean you don't have ownership over it. Here's the biggest issue I face as a freelancer is that when a client doesn't like what they hear they tend to get defensive, which leads to frustration and anger. Sometimes they will even threaten you, but at the end of the day you must remember that there is a lot of power in saying "no." I have burnt bridges with "friends" because I refused to send the RAW footage, but that brings the legitimacy of our friendship into question. I believe this is why "don't work with your friends" exists. When money or services aren't valued and you are trying to stand up for yourself it tends to be detrimental to relationships.  Get socialistic with Jon: http://jonvulpine.com/ | https://www.instagram.com/jonvulpine For classes/booking: http://justtheletterk.com/booking Read on to support the podcast!Get Socialistic with me: PUBLIC FACEBOOK GROUP:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/213571199185683/learning_content/ http://Twitter.com/projectfreelnce 🚴Come chase me: http://Instagram.com/projectfreelance My Music: http://Chasingsatellitesmusic.bandcamp.com 📸🖨Photo prints: http://justtheletterk.com/prints These are a few of my favorite things: For Photo/Film:Deals on Adobe Products: http://goo.gl/v35dPQ My FavoritePhoto Contest Sites: Viewbug http://goo.gl/pH2Vpq (free photography ebook upon signup)Gurushots: http://goo.gl/MtgWhK (Free bundle upon signup)Grow Your Youtube SEO: https://www.tubebuddy.com/ProjectFreelance For Adulting :pCrypto Currency - Coinbase - https://bit.ly/2Mc0iUy | get $10 of free Bitcoin when you buy or sell at least $100 of digital currency - Track Your Mileage with MileIQ: https://bit.ly/2MvMTnv -My 2019 KIT for Filmmaking, Photography & Vlogs:My Drone: https://amzn.to/2KXtsWhHandheld Stabilized camera: https://amzn.to/2KVBQ8MMain Vlog Camera: https://amzn.to/33YttjXWide Angle Lens: https://amzn.to/2HmJ4QMPretty art lens: https://amzn.to/2HGxwZ13 legged tripod: https://amzn.to/322EGhKPortable Solar Charger: https://amzn.to/348KfNEMagic Backpack: https://amzn.to/340OCu7Storage: https://amzn.to/2ZmaCA9Rode video mic: https://amzn.to/2zl2zonSkullcandy Headphones: https://amzn.to/2ZtmGLGMy audio recording setup: https://amzn.to/2zoiEJX-
