huh, that's funny
Even a DIT has fine print.
I charge a flat "LOL" rate per day of labor. My "kit fee" is any additional gear requested on top of this daily labor rate. You will be invoiced accordingly on the final day of production.
Please email me for a price quote based on your project needs.
A standard workday is eight hours—yes, even in the crazy world of production. Please be aware any personally quoted rates reflect this. Overtime and additional expenses for my presence should be planned accordingly.
If you want to make a good use of me as a DIT, set my call time later; have me come in an hour or two after the rest of the crew. I am usually the last person remaining on set, long after everybody else is enjoying the traffic on the 405 North. One of the things you can do to both respect my time and utilize your money is have me stay later for "free" by calling me in later. You'll thank me... uh, later.
Please provide production insurance. Look, I'm not even the person scaling catwalks, but just... have insurance. Safety is no joke on set, both for people and equipment.
If you cancel an equipment rental (i.e. camera) or labor booking within 24 hours of call time, you are expected to pay a kill fee; you must pay the full rate as I am unable to offer my gear and services elsewhere on such short notice.
