CV, Rates & Useful Info

CV – 2020

RATE INFORMATION (Updated 01/01/2019):
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.

PRE-PRODUCTION:
Please refer to my Pre Production Inquiry List to help ensure we have a smooth day.

LOCATION SCOUTING:
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.

GO GREEN!!
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.
