Long Term Freelance Projects
I recently just got hired to do a year long project celebrating the clients 20th year as a company. The end product will be a 30-40min video shown at a gala and DVD or Blu-Ray to be distributed to employees. That said, I have freelance rates in place for shooting, editing and delivering, but this is by far the largest project and longest time frame on a freelance project to date. My question is this, do I have the client pay all at once upon completion of project? Charge for half now and half upon completion? Or break full budget into quarterly chunks? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
