As a videographer, you can expect to be approached by people with great ideas for a video. They are certain that their local affiliates will want to air it. The video might take the form of a documentary, a travel video, or a how-to video. In a few cases, these folks have the capital to finance the venture, and they are ready to pay your fee for production and editing. But most of the time, these budding entrepreneurs want you to invest your time and your equipment purely on spec, with only the hope of sharing future profits.
