Hi Mick,

I think I agree with Neil. If you have a long term client (A) that pays their bills (albeit a bit slow) there's no reason to alienate them. Focus your immediate attention on Client B and develop that relationship.

There's a good chance that Client A (given their pace of getting you information and feedback) will not even notice that they've been put on the back burner.

If you get into a log jam with multiple deadlines/deliverable and your business/service model lends itself, you may be able to get some freelance help to do some functions in background (image prep, capturing, assistant editor type of work) while you remain the face to your client.

If that's not possible and/or it becomes as issue for Client A and you're forced to make a choice - do what you have to do. But I would try to accommodate both clients for as long as you can.

It may not feel like it, but you are in a very enviable position. You're just experiencing growing pains - and that's quite a feat in today's economy!

Good luck to you!

Production is fun - but lets not forget: Nobody ever died on the video table!
