Hourly Project Rate for Video Editing and DVD Authoring?

Hi all, I've been asked to edit video and author a DVD for a corporate client and it's honestly been a bit since I edited. Previously I edited for a very low rate (less than $30/hr) in order to provide some results and add to my portfolio, but I would like to get an idea of what you editors have charged hourly.

Services to be provided: Video Capture / Editing / DVD Menus and Final Authoring

Thanks in advance.

What are you using to edit? Doing some market research in our area (not close to the traditional media hubs of NY / LA / Chicago), the average post-production rate was $200 / hr. Most houses were running some flavor of Avid. May have seen a few using FCP.

You should definitely do some research around your area to find out what the going rates are. See how your services compare and try to charge accordingly.

Thanks

Hi Jon,

I'm using FCP to edit and using DVD Studio Pro 4 to author. Thanks for the tips, I will look into it!

Regards,
James
