Those rates are actually outstanding. For the Atlanta market, $500/day is the going rate for a Producer / Director. Some folks get more, but not many.

Yep. Here in Texas, I've been seeing between $500-$850 for most projects.

For directorial only... that is, showing up with no crew, equipment, or hardware except for the two director's "must haves" (director's finder and baseball cap) we usually bill $175/hr.

I will say though that it's a very rare thing indeed, at least in this market, for a client to call and need a producer or director only. The call is almost always for a full production crew and equipment... director, producer, DP, lights/camera/sound/support and all the toys. I'd say it's been more than a year since we've even had an inquiry seeking director only. I'm sure it's different in other markets.

I think in our market (Madison) a producer day rate is anywhere between $400 and $700 a day. For directing, it depends on the project, but for most B2B video projects I would say that $1000 a day or more is pretty high. Budgets these days are more like $800 a day for typical corporate video directing. I can see more for a regional TV spot with a higher profile and when the director is chosen for a particular skill.

Most corporate clients would be surprised to see $1000 a day for producing a corporate video, and equally surprised if the directing rate was more than that much. Again, depends on budget, profile of the piece and perhaps distribution.
