    Not constructive for you no - but believe me we see many many requests here for people to work for ridiculous low rates for companys who profit highly from thier work.

    It's constructive for the regular site users - that was my aim (dude).

    "WILL BE LOOKING TO PAY AROUND 50 FOR 10 MINUTE EDITED VIDEO"

    You are, of course, joking. I also liked the bit about how the mug should be glad that he's getting free entry into the club! Nice one!

    Let's be frank here, anyone who makes a 10 minute video for 50 is a mug. Film students aren't that stupid. I have students working for me, cable-bashing and they get paid 100 a day. That is normal. 50 for all that work is a joke.

    If this is a serious offer, then it's nothing more than a con. Using other people's gullability to earn your money.

    Anyone who goes to a venue, with kit, films, records and edits the material into a 10 minute video, and then sells it for 50 is a fool.

    While i appreciate that you may be looking to get a cheap deal as a small company you need to realise that there is a limit to go to. What you are asking is too low. You may aswell ask someone to bend over and take it up the preverbial at the same time.

    For a 10 Minute video I would be charging you 2 - 5k. Maybe that puts things in perspective for you. 50 is not enough. It makes you look unprofessional as a business because you clearly havent researched this before looking for the talent.

    To understand how charges work break it down.
    • Camera hire (even if camera men own their own kit they will charge to hire, this then covers manitanece costs same goes for all other kit.
    • Shooting rates: 200 - 350 per day. why so high? Camera Operation is a specialised skill.
    • Tape stock
    • Editing Rates: you would be looking at a minimum of 2 days editing.
    • Graphics work. Any supporting graphics will need to be prepped for the film and edited in.
    This hopefully gives you a taster of how it breaks down and thus shows you that asking for a 50 job is rediculous. Its not a good deal for the right person - its financial rape. I'd charge you more than that just for a consultation.

    This isnt even worth doing for a student and i recommend all students to stay away from such a shoddy deal.


    Here's the other side of the coin too: SHODDY WORK!

    if you somehow manage to persuade some idiot to actually do this job for you for 50 it will be a puile of crap. You will then help further taint the video production industry with another cowboy who thinks they know what they are doing who will then go on and give us all a bad reputation and if that happens i will thankyou for being an utter idiot.

    No-one here is trying to be cruel to you. As previously mentioned we see these kind of posts all the time - if you search the foryums you will find many that equally come up against as much critique as this one.

    MarkW, The Guru and myself are all moderators here on the site but we are also all professionals in the industry. We take on the responsibility that people wont get screwed over by "deals" like this one.

    The minimum you can do to make yours "a good deal for the right person" is to add another zero to it.
