The only thing that should be charged is editing cost, i.e. all costs except for editing fees paid by the customer. There are two kinds of editing – basic and premium. An editor should charge for each type of editing.
Basic Editing – is paid according to a ‘work per hour’ model – for example an editor who edits every day for 2 hours in each case should charge $100.00/2 hours.
Basic editing should not apply to videos that have already been filmed and edited by you.
Premium Editing – is paid according to a ‘work per hour’ model – for example an editor who edits every day for 2 hours in each case should charge $300.00/2 hours and an editor who edits every day for 10 hours should charge $900.00/10 hours.
How much should I pay?
This is dependent on all expenses and is a personal decision. I charge different rates depending on how busy/busy the project is at that particular time of day and what type of editing (Basic or Premium) it is. Your editor should be able to show you the rates they charge, so you can decide if they are more than what you are willing to spend and/or if they are too much.
I was not comfortable editing for a month and still wanted a job, can an editor provide me with a quote?
Of course! For any editing job we are happy to answer any questions you might have or help you to find someone who has similar interests and skills.
Can I be an editor for less than the rate I set?
Not necessarily. If you can prove that you have the necessary skills to be an editor, we will give you a much more favorable rate than us. However the key is knowing that there is no guarantee that the rate you receive will be less than the lowest paid editor in the city at that time. The important thing is the experience level and the job you have applied for. If the job offered is not for you and you do not meet the experience requirement, then there has probably been a negotiation or some other reason that has driven up your rate.
Can someone work for free?
There is nothing in the law that says that you cannot be an editor for free. This is not a law, it is a marketing practice. If you want to do freelance editing, you can still do it with the help and advice of an editor because you are not limited by pay
