Vivid Bridge Studios
Hi! I’m looking to freelance in a small market as a Art Director for various video productions. What is a decent hourly rate and day rate to quote as someone fairly new to Art Direction/Production Design? I’ve been a video producer for 4 years and started Art Directing on pro Bono & passion projects for fun. I took my first paid gig for $550 a day just to get the work but would love constructive input on rates for Art Directors in video production. Thanks!
