Lots of plausible excuses from the no-shows last night but Robert, Wayne and Max still made it along to enjoy the camaraderie of the crowd standing outside the pub. Towards the end of the evening we went inside to find that there were actually some empty seats available, including this one, for reasons that would be obvious if I hadn't edited the photo.
As is often the case at these meet-ups when there are only freelancers in the group, the discussion turned to production budgets and the gulf in the perceptions of clients and producers that will probably never be bridged. I suppose it's our own fault for always wanting to do the best that we can with what are usually very limited resources.
Let's try to talk about something else at the next meet-up on Thursday 21 June. Location to follow.
