In my ongoing quest to find out the cost of everything, I wanted to get an idea of how much a soundman and Boom operator makes on your average Feature (union), Independent (non-union) and comercial shoot per day and per week. I didn't see a catigory this would really fit into so I put it here hoping someone might know. Thanks

Here in Toronto an operator on a professional non-union shoot, with their own gear pulls about 500 a day.

Canadian, but these days they are getting pretty close... which on a side note is really bad for the Canadian film industry. We depend on our dollar being lower to lure American productions into shooting in canada for a discounted rate.

Sorry to hear it. I know a lot of things shoot in Canada. I guess if PresIdent Dumb Ass and his hord of greedy slim buckets keeps destroying our economy we may get to a point where you guys come down here to make movies cheaper than you can up there. Hell if another idiot like him gets elected the next time, India may come here to make movies cheaper.
