It’s okay to ask for help. Sometimes it can be humbling, but it’s okay.
I got a little reminder about this yesterday. A short video has expanded into long video… a very long video… and it’s kind of b-roll challenged. We shot a bunch of raw video, but it started to get a little thin as the production grew in the edit bay.
So as much as it pained me, I turned to my client for help. And you know what? It paid off. Turns out they had exactly what I needed, was no work for them at all, and the video will now benefit.
It’s hard to ask for help sometimes, but when you get it you wonder why you ever made a fuss.
