Production cost is based on a Day Rate per primary crew member. Some examples of primary crew members are Director, Producer, Cinematographer / Director of Photography, Audio Recordist, Drone Operator, etc. Examples of non-primary crew members are production manager, production assistants, etc.

Day Rate is based on a 10 hour day at $1500 per primary crew member.

If the full 10 hours is not used for a given day it will be pro-rated using a 25% base rate plus hourly rate scale:

1 person crew = $375 base rate + $112.50/hr
2 person crew = $750 base rate + $225.00/hr
3 person crew = $1125 base rate + $337.50/hr
4 person crew = $1500 base rate + $450.00/hr

Third party crew (production assistants, craft services, media wranglers, talent managers, transportation, etc.) usually have their own costs and will be quoted as requested if we bring them in for a project. We can also make crew recommendations if you prefer to hire them directly.

Airfare, Rental Car, Lodging, Parking, Shipping, Location Permits, and any other travel or site fees incurred by our crew are additional. These will be estimated before the project begins whenever possible.
