Default RE: Draganfly iv. Anyone flew it?Control?

I figured yall were owned by Meredith in Des Moines. They own our CBS affilliate in Atlanta. It's getting really bad for freelance shooters. The average rate for serious news outlets is $300-$500 for each package, mostly exclusives, but not with CBS46. They will only pay around $100 for exclusive and $50 for shared, translation, not from me they won't! As far as news which I don't do much of, I have mostly shot for the ABC affiliate WSB, and for CNN. This is a top ten market and no wonder WSB is rated number one, they actually pay a decent rate to get exclusive footage! I have been mostly shooting reality type content for Discovery Networks (Discovery, Discovery Health, TLC), MTV, A&E, Fine Living, etc..

Here is a really cool informative DV Production board, DV Info Net that you may be interested in. They cover just about everything from acquisition to post.
