RATE INFORMATION (Updated 01/01/2018):
For my current rates and for terms of service, please refer to my RATES & TERMS CARD
Note that the terms listed are non-negotiable, regardless of budgets agreed to.
* If you have a projected budget for sound please include that information upon contacting me.
I am open to discussing numbers on a project to project basis and will do my best to work within the confines of your budget, within reason.
Please refer to my Pre Production Inquiry List to help ensure we have a smooth day.
For narrative works, I should be involved with the location scouts.
Additionally, you can use http://howloud.com to get a sense of what noise is like at your desired locations. If we are shooting exteriors in or near a red zone, please consider if this location is absolutely necessary.
* Please consider these issues when planning tight schedules and magic-hour shots.
LOCKING IT DOWN:
Great sound takes COLLABORATION WITH THE ENTIRE PRODUCTION (beginning with pre-production). I encourage you to read “An Open Letter from your Sound Department” and help me help you create the best possible sound-track of your talents’ performance.
Making Productions Green SAVES YOU MONEY!
In an effort to be Eco-Friendly, I primarily use Rechargeable NiMh batteries and only purchase a smaller number of lithium-ions for certain situations and backup. This SAVES YOU MONEY and KEEPS OUR PLANET HAPPIER! I charge a small daily fee to keep my stock replenished, as their cycles wear out per-use. Your savings on my invoice.
