Hi all - I've seen posts about this from varying points of view. When discounting a rate for a non-profit, charity, student film, etc. what should actually be discounted? I've worked deals from many different angles, but I wanted to get a better sense of what everyone else does.
I've read to only discount the gear, but maintain the labor rate - I've seen to discount the labor because they should at least be renting the gear - and of course there's the "if they can't afford it, then don't do it" argument.
Also, it seems that the general consensus is to offer discounts for later or "future" projects rather than firsts. However with established clients that occasionally need help making budget, what would you do? Perhaps it's market based also?
What say you?
