I had a really good job in which I was asked to create a video using stock footage, music, and VO. Only the VO script was approved by buyer. Rest was left to be sourced by myself. It was a good project and and client was paying a good amount so I included 3 revisions for them.
Anyway I made the video (1 min 23 sec) and delivered it. In the first revision they asked me to change the footage being used at a specific part of the video, change a few texts etc. I did those in like one day and sent em back. After that they told me the video was being approved by higher management and more revisions will be sent soon. WELL, finally the point; they sent the second revision details 10 days after I submitted the first revision. And in this they have sent me a completely new VO script which is 25 seconds longer then previous and they want footages of nearly the whole video changed!
I need help as to what to do. This is not a revision but a new project to me. Music will change since video run time increased by 30 sec, animations will change as the VO text has changed, video will change and VO will change. Only a few animations and maybe a little of the footage from previous video will remain.
Is this normal for a revision? And if not how should I talk to the client about this. Please help out. I’m new to freelancing incase u didnt notice xD.
P.S They didnt label the order as In Revision so it was marked as complete complete automatically after 3 days of first submission. They also gave me a 5 star rating. Can rating be changed?
