I’m sure a lot if not all of us have made videos for friends or have been approached for commissions at some point. I have a gauche question… what do you charge?
I still do this now and then, but I feel like I’m undercharging for work that most of the time I’d rather not even be doing. I guess once it’s something expected of me, it feels like work, so fuck that y’know? I’ve been quoting people at $200 - $250 Canadian as a friendly rate, the big problem being is that they’re all friends.
Anyway, I want to raise my rates pronto, I’m just having trouble ballparking it. I usually don’t do any shooting, it’s all in-equipment effects and found footage.
