Hello, I’ve been asked to score a 70 minute documentary and they want to know how much I will be charging. The quality of the footage is very good, and they have decent financial backing. I’m estimating their total production budget at 700k-1.2 million.
Is there a working wheelhouse range? I’ve never had any sort of gauge for this and fear that too often I come in too low just to get the gig. My instinct is saying to ask 20-30K delivered.
I’m thinking this would require 2-4 weeks of my time, and would be 100% sample based with some live overdubs here and there. Any advice or insight would be very appreciated.
