What they'll charge you
Youll pay for the help you get from any editor, web designer, or writer.
on-demand Script editors charge anything from $0.04 and up per word for a basic line edit. Imagine that $1,000 just to have someone read and spell check your script. You get it back polished, but is it any good???
I charge half that. $0.02 for for a basic line edit,
$0.03 for a line edit, treatment, and notes.
Not only can I save you some cash but when I'm done reading you will have some fresh notes and ideas. You will be able to improve your story, and have a treatment to submit the next time you take it someplace.
Can cost anything from 1,500 to 2,000 for a professional looking pages.
Big companies can afford to throw this kind of bread around all the time. Individuals, on the other hand, are unable to see such a cost as affordable. Lets face it, there not.
I charge $12 bucks per hour. How much you pay depends on how detailed you want your web sight or your web page to be.
Film and Video editing
on-demand film and video editors usually charge by the hour ($25.00-$60.00) or day ($125.00-$160.00)
They also charge all kinds of fee's for use of equipment, traveling expenses, and most will charge you just to look at your film.
I charge $12 bucks per hour. $90 a day. $25 bucks per hour if I have to come to you.
I charge nothing to look at your movie, I like watching movies.
Let Me Be Your Editor, Story Coach, or Web Designer.
Send me an email query or you can phone me, too.
Ive edited more than 5 short films and one feature length documentary as well as written one screenplay, so far. I can give you the benefit of years worth of film knowledge, post production experience, and good ideas.
I can help you, cut your film or brake down your script.
Together, we can brainstorm for ideas, structure, and outline. We can work to overcome problems of getting your vision out of your head and onto to the medium of your choice. I can improve your story, style, and help it shine. As a film maker and screenwriter myself I can help you pre-write, write, and rewrite.
Ill be happy to hold your hand till the very end.
Ill work with you as a friend or teacher. When Im working for you, we work as a team. My experience and my expertise will be at your disposal until the project is completed to your satisfaction. I hold a MFA in Film production/post production and a BA in Communication Study: This means I know a lot more about what goes into a good story or add copy then people who just like watching them. My only goal is that you end up with a clean project and that you are happy with the results I can give you.
My fresh eyes are worth it . . .
Ill see the details others miss, simply because you wrote it, shot it, or have been committed to it. You know what it says or is supposed to say, even if thats not what it really says. Maybe your mother and everyone else you know has seen it and praised it. After all they want to support you and that's what friends are for. However if you hire me . . .
youre paying me to be honest and frank.
Youre paying me to find and correct mistakes.
You also need to know what film and written editing are not.
1. I am not a ghost writer, or a happy go lucky intern.
I do not work without credit or pay.
3. I do not give free professional advice.
(unless I know you and we have worked together on past projects)
4.I am not an agent.
5.I cannot negotiate contracts or practice law for you in any way.
Please dont ask.
What you need to know
If you are working on a media project of any kind many will try to take advantage of your lack of experience.
Many will take a look at your work, then they tell you all the things that are wrong with it. Worse still, they will suggest that you give it to them and let them work on it for a few dollars. The problem in this case is it becomes their project and stops being your project.
Ive seen professionals make this mistake over and over when dealing with the actual creative person themselves. I have been on both sides of that desk and I can tell you the guys in the suit's are smart people. They will do anything possible to not offend, including not actually getting to know you, or your project.
To them your a product, one of many. To me your a stepping stone. All I can really offer you is that when you come to me, we can build a working relationship based on the fact that like you I to am trying to break into the media industry. If you do well my resume gets longer.
