How much are you charging for Rectials?

HI

wondering how much you all charge for videotaping & editing a dance recital [ie. for kids & teens] using a one camera setup.

I know there are many factors that will determine price, but i'm real curious..

thanks
karen

For me it would depend on how many people are in the recital. If there is a posiblity of tape sales I may cut them a deal on the price. Off top I would charge about $800. This would vary if they wanted lighting and how long the recital would be. If there is a group of people performing you can tell them to annouce if they want a copy of the tape they can be ordered for about $25 or what ever you are happy with. Most likely you will be shipping them out so get name and address. I take up my money the night of the event. If it were a big group I may cut them a deal on the price because it is a easy project and tape sales would compensate. If they were willing to pay the $800 I woud sell tapes for $6 plus shipping.

These are just general numbers and I am sure most people around here will give some other good advice.

My wife is a school teacher at a private school and I videotape their all the time. I don't charge them but we sell tapes. We do good on tape sales. I always have an example of the box with a full color art sleeve on display which catches everybodies eye. Now they realise their home camera will not give them the results of the pros.

just an idea.

I'd charge them about $150/hr for shooting, including your setup time. For editing, I'd charge less, maybe $75-$100/hr. Possibly less if there is more than 4 hours of editing.
