FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • 1. I HAVE A FILM PROJECT I WANT YOUR TEAM TO PRODUCE - HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

    Unfortunately I can't provide flat rate pricing for projects such as films and documentaries, simply because the scope of two projects is never the same. The cost can vary greatly depending on the level of involvement and timeline – remember, an artist’s rate is simply a reflection of the demand for their services.

  • 2. DO YOU WORK ON AN HOURLY RATE, OR QUOTE BASED ON THE PROJECT?

    I prefer to provide complete project quotes rather than working on an hourly basis, so that I can effectively manage my clients budget expectations and ensure there are no surprises from the beginning.  There is no "one size fits all" billing solution in the media industry, so I'm open to alternative arrangements, such as per hour, per project or a trade for services in some instances.

  • 3. DO I HAVE TO PAY UPFRONT?

    I require a deposit upon approval of the project quote, with the remaining balance to be paid upon distribution of content.  The deposit ensures the client is committed to moving forward with the project.  For large scale projects, the total cost may be split up and paid upon project milestones.

  • 4. HOW CAN I PAY MY INVOICE - WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?

    Invoice payments are due within fourteen (14) days of the billing date noted on the invoice.  Payments are accepted by cash, check, or PayPal.

  • 5. I HAVE A PROJECT THAT'S NEVER BEEN TRIED BEFORE. ARE YOU STILL INTERESTED?

    Are you kidding that's what we live for!  Seriously though, I work with a highly talented group of freelance designers, producers, and creative professionals across a broad range of media.  We lock ourselves in "TheTank" and don't leave until we find a solution to your problem.

  • 6. ARE YOU ACCEPTING SUB-CONTRACTORS?

    I'm always on the lookout for talented designers & content producers!  If you have a great portfolio and are looking to take on freelance projects, drop me a line with some samples of your work (or online portfolio) and we can discuss working together on future projects.

  • 7. WHAT ARE YOUR WORKING HOURS? WHEN CAN I CONTACT YOU?

    As a freelance producer, my hours of work are quite flexible.  I allocate specific days and hours for the general tasks of running a business such as client discussions, responding to emails, updating marketing materials, etc.  It’s best to contact me via email Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., although I will certainly do my best to respond to requests in the evenings.  Unless an urgent project requires it, I don’t typically work or take meetings on weekends.
