RATES

Below you will find my current rates for various project formats. These are basic flat rates that take into account the average amount of hours it takes to edit or film a video of the indicated length. If you require a customized rate or something within a smaller budget, please contact me directly to discuss your needs!

 

Reminder: Clients are required to sign a legal services contract for all work requested, and have the option to either use escrow services for funds transferral, or compensate 25% of the agreed on amount up front. Raw assets and project files may not be fully transferred until project amount is paid in full. This keeps us both safe from manipulative practices. Please contact me for any questions regarding this.

FILMING/PRODUCTION + EDITING/POST-PRODUCTION

Need help with both on your production? Please contact me! I offer low, customized flat rates for projects that need it. Includes all perks below (unlimited revisions up to final approved deliverable, equipment coverage, etc). This is usually a much better option for things like music videos, behind the scenes, and features. Let's create your dream video!

EDITING AND POST-PRODUCTION

VIDEO LENGTH UP TO 1 MINUTE - $200

VIDEO LENGTH UP TO 2.5 MINUTES - $400

VIDEO LENGTH UP TO 10 MINUTES - $1,000

LONGER THAN 10 MINUTES - CONTACT ME FOR CUSTOM RATE

All editing and post-production work includes basic motion graphics (if advanced VFX are needed, rate may change), and unlimited revisions until the final deliverable is approved and sent. Rates cover all hours of work performed up to approved final deliverable, administrative time (file management, project setup, rendering), and file storage. Post approved deliverable, revisions are billed at $22/HR.

FILMING AND PRODUCTION

DAY RATE (HOME STUDIO, PRODUCT VIDEOGRAPHY ONLY) - $100

DAY RATE (ON LOCATION - LOCAL [LESS THAN 50 MILES]) - $250 PER 6 HOURS

DAY RATE (ON LOCATION - REMOTE [UP TO 150 MILES] - $450 PER 6 HOURS

DAY RATE (ON LOCATION - REMOTE [MORE THAN 150 MILES] - CONTACT ME FOR CUSTOM RATE

All filming and on location production work includes coverage for all equipment needed (if any special equipment is needed, rate may change). Day rate also includes coverage for all travel to location (gas, lodging, etc). Set up and tear down of equipment is separate of hours paid for, and will not affect booked rate.
