Hey, my name is James Regino. A few months ago I started a project called "Just Discover Yourself". The site is about documenting individuals striving to accomplish their dreams. At one point MTV was interested in my project, but everything fell through because I didn't want to lose creative control.
My goal has always been to get into video production, and ever since I began the project, I started to get job offers... but here's my problem... I have no idea what to charge for video work!
The one job I'm considering is for a group of car dealerships. They want a 2 to 3 minute video on every used car they sell. The video would be shots of all the features on the car, voice over narration throughout, titles, graphics, and sound effects.
Now, I use to work for a company taking photos of used cars for dealerships; and I was billing 18 dollars a car for 25 pictures. So I was thinking of charging 35 dollars a car for each video.
What do you guys think? I need some major help in this department.
