Thread: Video Editor rates?

  1. #1

    Question Video Editor rates?

    Hello all,

    I have been offered to work as a video editor for a small NGO on one of their projects. What would be a sensible hourly rate to charge them? I have about two years of editing experience, partly accrued during my masters and partly working on my own stuff, but I have never worked for someone else.

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Thank you,

    Hard to say what you should charge. The "going rate" is around £30 an hour for a full speed editor, by that I mean someone who has experience and skill to do the job at a good rate. So start from there and work your way down to what you think you are worth and what you can get.
