sassybeee : I missed the price in your initial post. That is sloppy for that caliber of videographer. I just meant to say don’t push too much or you might get back a less than ideal product.
As compensation, I would ask them to give you a flash drive *now* of the unedited footage as insurance against the breech of contract. I was a “friendor” for the projects I’m working on but I made sure all parties have the unedited footage as insurance against the finished product so they could commission someone else to make a recap if something became of me or my files. Good luck, bee!

AnonBee2019 : PaperQueen : So we get a “highlight” video which is about 3-5 minutes, and then we get the raw footage. But it’s not like he has to edit the raw footage, technically he could’ve gotten that to us months ago.

Alyx19 : yeah don’t worry I’m not going to push back! Don’t want to jeopardize the final product haha! And yes we’re supposed to get the raw footage, I wonder if he’d give it to us now while he works on our video. Worth a shot to ask. Thanks!

From what I understand, editing a video is a pretty creative process. It’s hard work and hard to foce creativity. Also, it’s not just your video that’s priority. There could have been weddings that happened the weekend or month before that he has to edit and get out to them too. 6 months sounds pretty normal, from when I did research. If he’s just a one man show, cut him some slack. He’s probably working as fast as he can. He definitely should have given you a heads up that it was going to be late though!
