If you are contacting me to hire me or use my services as a film maker, editor, poet, writer or even actor, my rate is at minimum $20 an hour. That does not exclude additional expenses should they be required. However for certain types of projects I may be willing to accept a set sum or a day rate as determined by SAG AFTRA for example. Another example would be editing a five to ten minute short for a set fee of $40O. I am only in the SAG AFTRA union. I am willing to work non union in other roles on a set, but not non-union as an actor.
