A couple of weeks in the office, a few thousand dollars and a few days behind the scenes.
Is it worth the time? Not in terms of “real-life” time, not in terms of actually filming things, but rather the time a freelance writer may spend on a freelance project for a client in the hopes that they’ll pay the writer money.
Do you like to make a living from your work? No, but it’s not about taking a job if you don’t want to. People who work outside of their profession are still working within the bounds of their profession, and that’s cool.
Can you hire or work with someone else with a similar story?

Do you do more than one project a month? Usually more than one.
