Video Production Rates/Pricing

While it is impossible to provide a quote for an entire project/video without knowing all the details (see my FAQ page for more about this), here is a list of prices for some of the individual services/packages I can provide, the reasons for choosing a particular package, as well as the equipment used.   
 
*Please note, video production freelancers generally don’t bill hourly (for field production), but instead go by a day or half day rate.  A half day here is defined as 0-5 hours on location, but can include travel time if the location is a significant distance away.  A full day is 5-10 hours under the same terms.  After 10 hours, overtime is incurred at $45/hour.

These two packages are suitable for situations where the client already owns the camera/gear that will be used:

 

Half Day Shoot/Videographer with Camera Package  - $550

Full Day Shoot/Videographer with Camera Package - $650

These two packages are suitable for situations where the client needs a videographer with his own camera and good sound, but lighting is not a concern:

 

Half Day Shoot/Videographer with Camera Package and basic audio gear  - $625

Full Day Shoot/Videographer with Camera Package and basic audio gear - $725

These two packages are suitable for situations where the client needs a videographer with his own camera, good sound and additional lighting because of a poorly lit environment or for a more polished, professional look:
 

Half Day Shoot/Videographer with Camera Package, basic audio gear, and light kit - $725

Full Day Shoot/Videographer with Camera Package, basic audio gear, and light kit - $825

Editing/Post-Production - (this service is billed hourly) $50/hour

 

Video editing services are needed (with few exceptions) on any job where the client will NOT be editing the footage themselves or handing it off to an editor at their own company or a freelance editor (see my FAQ page for more about this):

 

Other services:

 

Half Day grip/utility (with no equipment provided) - $200

Full Day grip/utility (with no equipment provided) - $300

Teleprompter Operator with Equipment (*full day rate only, no half day) - $575
