REAL TALK: DAY RATES
In a new city, currently a mobile editor for my hometown employment. Trying to figure out what to charge these bigger production companies for contract work as DP, Cam Op, Editor.
I'm pretty experienced but a bit of a push over, I've won the Chattanooga Film Festival best short and gotten into many others this year. I own my own equipment, camera, edit suite, etc. I've been doing this full time for the last 5 years of my life, worked as a DP with a RED, A7s, FS-700, 5DIII, and feel very confident with those and can find my way around an ARRI Alexa as well.
Video editing, I've been doing for 7 years or more.
Any suggestions? I want numbers... not, it depends.
