    Remember rates will also vary from country to country.

    I just became an IATSE member after years of work in the film industry as a set dresser a week ago. $530 initiation fee and $288 for the yearly membership. I hope never to use it as a set dresser. it's there as a back-up if we can't make Siteline Media succeed? One of the biggest and most worrisome questions we have is, what to charge? This could prove to be a very helpful thread. Duane we too are in Canada, Victoria, BC.

    I would also be charging for idle time. You show up and the weather's bad, the DP's not sober, or the talent is absent.....
    In this case, you may be the DP (so stay sober!), but there still may be idle time (e.g. construction crane on site delays shooting....)

    Andy.
