I am wondering about how to categorize filming inquiries. Traditionally, higher-end location inquiries would come via a location service, and a day rate would be $5,000/day or more, with half that for prep and strike days. This would be for commercials, films, music videos, etc. For those who deal with the larger productions, do you have good questions to distinguish these types of projects from those with smaller budgets?
I don’t want to scare off the small to mid-size projects, but I also want to be fairly compensated by the larger productions. Appreciate any feedback from your experiences, thanks!
