In what seems like another life, I used to assist on car shoots in LA for Damon Productions where we closed sections of the PCH for BMW and Toyota. I also PA'd on commercials where we drove convoys of grip trucks across the state, a different location each day, sometimes nearly 100 on the crew and working 18hr days. We once had a dozen dwarfs painted in silver with bleeping laser guns looking like aliens running around on a beach for a Pontiac spot. Surreal.
With the tail between my legs, somewhat embarrassed, I had to tell the art buyer that no physical book was coming. Would I be blacklisted, forever banned from that agency? Over the years, I always heard rumors of such things happening. It was a wake up call that here I was marketing my services for assignments, but wasn't ready for such a call. I've since been researching new printers, testing printing papers, have ripped the plastic off my book, and am editing images. I can only hope I get another agency call so I can react to more professionally.
