  • Payoff


    I've been fortunate enough to be offered an opportunity to work with a wedding video production company as an editor. I don't live locally to these people, so the way that this would work is they would send me footage of a client's wedding on SD cards via post, I would create the video at home and send it back to them.

    The requirements are that I complete a sample wedding video using footage that they have sent me without pay (to see what I can do) and to tell them what sort of pay I'd be looking for considering how long I would have been working on the project.

    I'm not sure how I would go about estimating my payoff. I don't know what would be considered too much or not enough in the world of editing. What would you suggest?

    Totally depends on the time you put in...which is dependent on the coverage, which I suspect would be pretty good for a wedding, but ya never know.

    Also depends on how many bells and whistles you add---fancy animated titles, stock footage BGs, color grading, etc.

    Be aware, though, that they may be looking for free work for this one job.
