As a newbie in the world of directing, I would like to propose an idea and budget for a documentary to one of several networks. However, having never produced a budget for such a large project, I am at a loss to establish what my own fee as a director should be.
I want to be fair and get paid for my work however I don’t want to indiscriminately pull a number from the clouds and hope it is accepted. Can your readers offer any suggestions on how one comes to a figure for a very in depth documentary.
