Sorry I have never been to a conference without a registration fee so I was
the one who made the assumption there was a fee. (I apologize.) If there are
no registration fees for the conference then the only costs we¹d have to
videotape the entire event are:

* Transportation to and from Boston from Chicago including tolls, gas, and
car rental = $450 
* HDV tapestock ($12 per hour per camera ­ after looking over the schedule I
would suggest having 30 tapes) = $360
* Food - ($30 per day for 2 people) = $300
* Large Firewire Harddrive for editing - $200

A Rough Estimate of - $1310 which I¹d round up to $1350 to include a $40

To film and edit a project like this, on top of the expenses or hardcosts
listed above we would normally charge $250 per person per day to film
(that¹s our low budget rate or half of our normal $500 dayrate) and another
$300 per day for editing (our editing costs are $50 per hour or $400 for a
10 hr day estimating it at least $3000 - $4000 in free labor that my partner
and I would be contributing. It¹d require just over a week working full-time
or a few weeks to complete it (if we edit part-time). Because we¹d have to
fit the editing in with other projects, we¹d only be able to edit it
part-time so I would expect 2-4 weeks after the conference to complete the
DVD. It also does not include any DVD manufacturing or replication. If
people wanted DVD¹s we¹d burn a copy from the one we made instead of having
2000 copies made off the bat. If someone from the conference wanted to email
me privately I can make a formal quote of the costs and put together a
proposal ­ laying out the details and what we¹d be offering for free. I
think I might be able to get an artist to donate artwork for a DVD cover if
we did move forward. If someone wanted to cover all the costs themselves and
then partner up selling the DVD¹s (not for profit but to cover the expenses)
it might be easier than collecting pre-orders. (we¹d need at least 135 $10
per-orders and that wouldn¹t cover postage (we¹d have to add an additional
$2 per order to ensure postage was included and not our of our own pockets).

This is without housing of course (as long as we can find a place to stay in
Boston). My good friend just moved from there to NY but I might be able to
stay with one of his friends or old roommates otherwise we¹d need another
$75-100 per night for motel/hotel.

To be honest it¹s easier than this sounds ­ we do non-profit gigs like this
as often as we can. We usually donate our time to 2-3 pro-bono projects per
year as long as we can get the costs covered. (We recently made a video for
the Conscious Alliance covering their impact at the 2008 Rothbury Festival.
A very small percentage of the donations they received at the Festival
covered our expenses and in the end the video garnered much more exposure
for them.) 

Video is a great way to reach people. Especially for those who can¹t afford
to make the trip themselves to Boston but would like to benefit from the
knowledge the speakers plan to present. I should even be able to get 1-2
local volunteers to help my partner and I to ensure their is adequate
coverage. (Again we¹d be sure that every speaker gave their permission
before filming and if they were not interested we could either skip their
presentation or offer an alternate audio recording only.)

Feel free to email me at info at wigglepuppy.com and I will give you my contact
info so we can speak further.
