It’s almost 5 AM and I am trying to get a blog out before I go to work. Today is Saturday, which means it’s time to talk about industry terms and set etiquette.[/caption]
Today’s industry term is:
Being a freelance makeup artist can be pricey, and having a well-stocked kit can cost thousands of dollars. Because of the investment in your supplies often times when you’re negotiating your pay for a project, production companies will offer to pay a kit fee. This is the money that production pays you as a daily fee for using the content of your kit on the show. Also referred to as a “kit rental.” It is supposed to cover the wear and tear of your tools, as well as the use of products that you have in your kit.
Kit fees can range from $25 a day and up, depending on the budget of project. Kit fees are separate from your day rate. Some smaller productions will offer to only pay you a kit fee, due to a meager budget. It’s a good idea to think about what type of fees will charge before you talk to a production company.
