Someone asked me to videotape a half-hour press conference. Broadcast quality (3-chip HDV OK) but no PA system so (depending on the layout of the room) I'll either mount a shotgun mic on the camera (reporting style) or have a separate sound person.
Out of 30 min. of tape, the person who's hiring me and I will select three 10-sec soundbytes, and I'm to deliver 8 DVD copies two hours after the press conference. I'm also to make versions of the videos for the web.
What can I charge for this?

Just charge your usual hourly rate + costs of sound guy and any equipment.
Simple enough ain't it?

I'd go a flat rate with added charges for the rush.
If you tell em 750 bucks. Thats a hald fay shoot, minimal travel, capturing, clip-grabbin and authoring or encoding, discs and as you said, perhaps an audio dude (who is not nbeeded for this).
I'd just use the camera mic so the questions can be heard as well. You can clip him with a wireless lav on a seperate channel to cover all basis.
