My day rate for rental is 650 or so depending on the situation and if im cam op or not.
I just had somebody request a quote for a feature 20 days of shooting. I quoted them 10k with it being negotiable. thats 525 a day. So they told me that was outrageous.
and said they had a budget of 3k and they want a scarlet. They then told me i should reduce my rate because there are other camera owners with R1's that would take this offer. I feel like that is crazy.
Are there any R1 owners that would rent their camera package for 150 a day?
Is this person just crazy and trying to use jedi mind powers for me to reduce my rate?
EDIT::::: I realize the 10k was way too high now. I Reapproached the guy and said 7k. still said hes not paying anymore than 3k and wants a full shootable RED rig and he knows two guys waiting for the job. So i just told him good luck, and if things change, he knows where to find me.
