Rate is variable, per the needs of your project. We will provide a rough estimate for the job, per the information given at the time of the booking. It is required that the client fully discloses the full requirements of the project upfront.

If the job requirements change, or if the job requirements stated exceed the estimated time alloted for the work, you will be billed accordingly per hour. We do not have any set rates, we sell our services by the hour, we have a 5 hour minimum for location work, travel fees, media fees, and possibly rental fees may apply. If the work exceeds the limited time purchased then it will cost more.

If you require us to edit or mix the files, we charge hourly for that service. Editing, mixing, etc is also referred to as Post Production, Post Production is NOT included in remote recording sessions. This is additional work. We do not provide estimates or quotes for Post Production work, it is not able to determine the amount of work for a project that is non-specified.

When working on location for remote recording sessions, the only product the client is given are the raw, un-edited, .aiff files on cdr backup that are burned on location. We will provide an invoice for the total balance of the project, which will add all hourly charges and fees incurred. These files will be delivered via UPS or FedEx carrier after the complete balance is paid in full.
