Here is a link to BECTU in the UK and their agreed rates for different positions on set. It's by no means definitive but it will at least give you a point of reference:

Corporate benchmark rates


Here are some key positions that you should be considering when putting a quote together:

  • Pre Production - costs
  • Producer daily/weekly rate
  • Director daily/weekly rate
  • Production Manager daily/weekly rate
  • Camera man
  • Sound recordist
  • Lighting Gaffer (BECTU Rates)
  • Production Runner
  • Post production
  • Offline editing
  • Online Editing
  • Grading
  • Sound Mix
  • Music Composition

Finally, rates are twofold.  If you are being hired as a cameraman, editor, director etc, then you can't really expect to get paid any more than the production company deems to be in line with 'the going rate'. However when you are the producer you can you can push rates a little higher and be more aggressive with your estimates.
