Geez, you guys are lucky.

I've been working in LA for a few years, worked in a couple "big" post houses.. and all of the assistants (of course) secretly talk about their pay...

an assistant editor right now is lucky to get 35-40k per year based on data i've gathered from 20 or so assistant editors over the last 2 years. (3 trailer houses and 4 full service post houses, as a freelancer)

It makes sense.. there are 30,000~ new grads every years in the US who all default to being editors after graduation. (after giving up careers as directors, of course.)

It's a buyers market.

750 a day for a freelancer? Where?.. maybe for a top notch flame artist doing stereo vfx work on a coca cola spot?
Having worked with a lot of smoke artists/avid DS/and fcp guys I've never met one who is getting close to that.

If that is the going rate in St. Louis let us know..
