Rick's Rate Card

There isn't any reason that pricing has to be complicated.  I'm a big fan of keeping things simple.  And to that end, I'm happy to accommodate paying by the word, minute, or hourI understand every project is unique and can work within your available budget. 

Prices vary based on project specifics, however, these are the basic range of rates for most of the

E-learning, Corporate Narration, & Explainer videos that I do.

$.19 - $.29

Per Word

$34 - $54

Per Finished Minute

Price Ranges

A typical e-learning, corporate narration, or explainer project will fall somewhere towards the middle of these rates.  The more complex your project, the more likely for the rate to increse. 

Projects are subject to $125.00 minimum session fee 

All pricing shown is quoted in U.S. dollars.  

Factors that affect price
