This is a really tough question to answer. We really need to discuss your project in detail before we can give you a ballpark figure. Everyone’s needs, budgets, and expectations are different. Typically though, our common rates are as follows:
FCP or Avid Editor/Graphic Designer: your facility, your equipment ($75/hr)
FCP or Avid Editor/Graphic Designer: our facility, our equipment ($100/hr)
FCP or Avid Editor/Graphic Designer: your facility, our equipment ($125/hr)
Director of Photography: ($100/hr)
Animal Handler: ($50/hr)
Holy smokes, that’s a lot of money! Please keep in mind these are very loose rates. We just hate it when a site says ‘call for rates’, so we post some numbers to get you started. There is a lot more to consider when trying to put a budget together for a shoot, like travel, equipment, personnel, licensing fees, etc. It can be a real pain in the tuchas! Breathe deeply, into a brown paper bag if necessary, and give us a call. We will get through it. Chances are, you probably won’t need the animal handler.
