Re: Need to rent a XLH1

Moved to Helping Hands. Neither AbelCine nor Birns & Sawyer show an XL H1 in their rental inventory, sorry.

Re: Need Freelance Shooters/Editors New Orleans

Thanks, Rob.

My rule is that if it's not fun, we don't do it.

We work hard, but we always have fun.

Probably none... I'm all for "helping", but too far to drive for a bag of peanuts...

Re: Looking for a second shooter with camera pkg

So folks -- are you saying that $200 is too much for someone with a simple camera shooting B-roll?

Or is it too low? If you are going to be condescending, at least be clear about it.

Best of luck, Tony. I'm sure someone will take you up on your offer.

Cheers.

Re: Looking for a second shooter with camera pkg

What?

The mid range camera that I run can not even be rented for double what this job pays (then add the sticks and mics to that). What about the cost and time of driving to and from the gig plus the TEN HOURS of work. Then consider local, state, federal and social security taxes on your earnings, what about liability insurance, heath care, and retirement? Or do you just jam the cash in your pocket and forget about these things?

I guess it depends on the value you place on your ability. Next time maybe you'll do it for the "exposure" or to "fill out your portfolio".

I'd just hate to see DVInfo turn into another Craigslist.

Re: Looking for a second shooter with camera pkg

Christian, I thought it was pretty clear.

What does it cost in DC to simply rent a decent HD/HDV camera package that includes batteries, tripod, etc., weekend rate? Fairly close to what was said the pay was I bet.

I don't know about DC, but out here $200 for an 8 hr day for anyone who's experienced and has their own gear is roughly a 1/3 to 1/2 (bare minimum) the going rate. Because it's b-roll has nothing to do with it in my opinion.

Re: Looking for a second shooter with camera pkg

That's what I get for stepping away for a bit just after I started typing. Kevin, if I had known you had already posted again I would have just let it be :D

Re: Looking for a second shooter with camera pkg

Hi Guys

Over here the going rate is $30.00 an hour if you use the videographers spare camera or $50.00 an hour if you have your own gear so 8 hours on site would pay normally $400.00 unless it was a really out of the city job!!

I pay my new 2nd shooter $30 an hour from the time she leaves home (using my cameras) so probably $200 isn't quite enough incentive to go out and do it!! Our shooters would also get a meal.

Chris

Look two posts down... first wanted to hire a cam, then in desperation, wanted to hire a second op... WITH a camera... for LAST weekend... hmmm, not sure how that worked out...

I don't think anyone here is being condescending, just pointing out that the "offer" is pretty low by any estimation, for 8 hours plus travel and you supply the camera... for 2-3 hours, and very limited travel, MAYBE It'd be worth it...

Then again, probably someone desperate enough and local enough, or amateur enough...

Hey, if he'd been an hour closer and a shorter gig, I might have considered lending a hand... but no...

Sydney Australia - Renting a hospital room for an hour.

I need to film someone dead on a hospital table. With people crying around him. Just wondering if someone knows of a place that will allow me to use a room in a hospital - or will rent for a reasonable price.

Re: Looking for a second shooter with camera pkg

He didn't say he was looking for a nice camera.
He didn't say he was looking for someone with experience.
He didn't say he was looking for someone to travel.

There is more than one way to skin a cat, and not every gig requires a full-time professional.

If you want to bid on a job anyway, politely PM or post and say what your requirements are and what you provide. Ragging on someone who is working a gig that doesn't appear to be at your "tier" is a waste and very short-sighted.

Cheerio.
