Don;t forget the original question was about an archive of tapes that
some client wants to buy for release, not archive. The client's wishes
have to be taken into account, even if they want quick and dirty. By
refusing to compromise, our friend David might lose the job to someone
willing to do shoddy work poorly, a loss to all. Better to bring
competent sensibility to do the best you can under the circumstances!
I am that David and I do agree, having spent my creative and productive
life, not in the enviable hallowed halls of a University, but pounding the
payments of Corporate America and World looking for a supporter of my next
documentary, book, CD or whatever. Fortunately, by bending just enough and keeping my
artistic e=integrity, I have succeeded. the client wants to do this and make
money. There has to be a way to make that happen.
