I need some help in figuring out what payment to ask for as a steadycamoperator. Where can I find some guidelines?
Of course there are differences in what kind of job, commercials, cinema, tv-movie or tv-show. Additionally it of course makes a difference in what country you are working, what kind of rig you own, how good you are and what is expected at the job. Speciffics are of course almost impossible, but any guidelines would be a great help.
At the moment I am about to work for a German TV Show, with the Arri Alexa, and I am really not sure how much to ask for. I did some TV-show pilots and a lot of student-movies, musik-videos and the like, but I am not sure if the money I got was reasonable.
I know that nobody likes to talk numbers, but I heard professional veteran operators complain about the price dumping of the new generation, and i really don`t want to be a part fo that problem.
Any help would be appreciatet greatly.
