Posted 28 November 2006 - 12:58 AM

Hi everyone, I was wondering if someone could help me out.... I recently served as a camera operator and director of photography on a commercial for the American Cancer Society's Discovery Shops. This was a project for my Advanced video production class at San Francisco State University. If my groups commercial gets picked the commercial would air all over Northern California. We are not really getting payed but our professor would like us to give information on how much my position would be making if we were to charge the American Cancer Society for the commercial. I was wondering what my position would make on an hourly basis....thanks for your help.

These are from a fairly current union rate card (I think they are close):

DP 87.13
Cam. Op. 53.33

With an 8 hour minimum

In the non-union world the rates can vary wildly.

You would normally just get your DP rate.
