Charge per hour


Just shooting and editing, $100 per hour is a good average, and plan on 8 hours or more as a contingency. In most of my commercial gigs the client/producer is responsible for acquiring/paying talent, or if a full crew is needed I charge accordingly for each area of crew services and add 10 percent for contengencies.

As Luis notes, day rates work if you have the experience and equipment to make things work.
