I'm a film student in Boston and a resident of Cape Cod. My dream is to make movies someday, but paying for expenses is nice too.
I work very hard to find people who might be interested in my services, which ranges from event video, music videos, and commercials.
I've tried to reasonably price my service at $350 per day on production, a $100 consulting rate (which is for people who want help on troubleshooting), and $50 per hour for editing. Which I think is pretty cheap. And lots of people have turned their noses up at it.
Posting on Craigslist has found me individuals who won't even pay more than $100 or less.
Recently I've just given in and have been marketing my price at around $150 - $200 flat. Which I've begun to regret, but what else can I do?
I have no idea how to just simply find and call up places that might require my service. And I have no experience in putting myself out there.
Is there any advice someone can give me as to where to begin?
