Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Every video requires a team, crew & sometimes cast. I have a core team with specific day rates & a network of freelancers & vendors who also have industry standard day rates. There is typically a range, non-profit work on the lower end and commercial / corporate work on the standard end. Day rates average between 250 & 1,200, depending on the position & what is required of the person. Equipment rental rates are also very standardized. Owning some of our own equipment, like lenses and a Sony FS7 allows us to price competitively.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First, I listen. Do you have any existing ideas or do you want ideas from me? What problem is being solved? What are the project's goals? What is the budget range?
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Art School in Media. University Study in Creative Writing. Over 15 years experience, including theatrically-released feature films, 30 sec commercials, reality TV, and many internet videos, both commercial & documentary style.
