I've been payed to play live at peoples houses, I've been payed for CDs in the past, but this is the first time I was hired for a TV/Movie project. =)
I spent 3-4 hours total between talking to the producer and playing/writing music. all said and done with I wrote about 12-13 mins worth of music.
They used maybe 5 mins of it to do what they needed to do.
so that works out to be $100 a min.
The bad part about it is the fact that I think the music sucks! the type of music they needed is just so...... .... ... blah. I couldnt have any fun I had to keep everything boring and bland. I guess sometimes that's how it works.
I was told everyone on the client side of things loved it!
If anyone needs music for a project let me know =)
p.s the video was only a 7 min histroy clip of the companys background.
