83. BONUS QUESTION. If you could only afford to pay one of the

#83. Explain: There is no right answer to this question. However,
it's a lot cheaper to fix bad sound, than it is to fix a series of out of

make a shot look good. Also, it's not hard today to find a DP to work

You should always be the last to get paid, if at all.
