@Mike, That’s a brilliant


@Mike, That’s a brilliant website! Thanks for the link! I’ve always been slightly opposed to hourly rates only because I was living in a college dorm and my hours would often be interrupted by roommates or other things. But now that I have my own office space I think you’re right, I should consider that! I think $50/hour sounds reasonable… here’s my equipment list:

Panasonic GH1 with multiple lenses

Canon 550D with multiple lenses

Tripods, monopods, etc.

Boom mic, lapel mic, hand-held mic + Zoom H4n Recorder

LED lighting

Adobe CS5.5 on my 27″ iMac (I also have FCPX, but I prefer Adobe…).
