I have an opportunity for do a big project for a non-profit art organization. It consists of 30 - 60 illustrations I will hand drawn in pen & ink and then colorize digitally. The timeline is generous and not a problem. These will be used for a musical presentation on line. Approximately 50 mins. My drawings will be the only visual images the viewers see.
The project director assures me they have “funding” and I should “charge a real fee”. Below is the break down of an estimate based on 30 illustrations. Does it make sense? Are there any other areas I should consider?
30 finished illustrations x $XXX = XXXX.
Script work: 6 hours x $XX = $XXX
Planning, story boarding, preliminary sketches: 25 hours x $XX = XXX
General Project Management: 12 hours x $XX = XXX
Total: 30 finished illustrations = $XXXX
I have a sneaking feeling I’m breaking some sort of rule as I post the figures. If so, please let me know and I will remove. Thanks!
