I saw the post, that’s a sad thing which unfortunately happens too many times. I think that’s why it’s good to always discuss the contract & payment in the beginning :(

No one deserves to be exploited. But capitalism is without morals, and like the guy said, he saw the warning signs. The first question would be: why is the budget so small for the ad campaign of a major movie release?

Sad to know this.

But always be careful:
1. Sign a contract with them
2. Start work only after receiving 30% as advance payment
3. Always deliver the original work only after you are paid 100%.

I actually request 100% advance, but I offer discount on that if it’s a bigger $$$.

But this kind of things always make me sad.
