    Question for Pros

    This is a question specifically for pros,

    I got a callback from Propaganda games (Disney Interactive subsidiary) about doing storyboards for some in-game cut scenes.

    Here's my problem. They asked me what my rates are. I've only ever done TV episodes, where I make about $6000 for an 11 minute cartoon. Obviously, cut-scenes aren't nearly that long, but they probably will be more labour-intensive. I wanted to ask what you would charge, and how you would charge. By the minute? By the page? It's a contract job, so I'll be out-of-house I expect.

    Any advice you can give is much appreciated.

    Steve

    Dunno, see how long it would take you to do a page of average difficulty, set yourself a wage/hour and calculate how much you need to charge per page?

    + travel/other job expenses.

    Yeah, or I could ask some fellow pros what they'd charge.

    Well I'm a wandering armature but there are guides out there for pricing. Also, why not price at the wage you expect normally plus 25%?

    boards run a hundred twenty five to hundred fifty per panel in many cases, for the pros level. They tend to crank em out in an hour to ninety mins each to hit that budget...granted it doesnt look like it....may seem like a lot but ya gotta have steady steady work to see that work out well.

    that is always the best way to handle things...if they balk you come down to the number you want.
