I recently got asked to author a DVD that has menus, including bonus features, etc. This is for a movie that was done in Hollywood. I am needing some information on how much I should charge. What is the standard?
We charge our hourly rate for the authoring, including all the Photoshop work, pre-planning, testing, etc., and a separate rate for the encoding/compression if we handle that too. We have tiered rates for encoding/compression based on TRT.
If you don't know how to calculate your hourly rate, do a quick search on the COW and you will find some great threads discussing that at length.
