Partners or whomever can help me understand about billing and hours. To keep things simple, let’s say you only have one staff to work 1,700 billable hours a year on a $60k salary and you have only one job that and the rate charged to the client is $300/hour and an projected hours budget of 1,700 hours. So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?

shooting a series of videos for a spirits client, with creative centered around “talking head interviews” and mixologists creating a few cocktails. Will be internal sales team-facing as opposed to consumer/brand creative. wondering if anyone has recommendations for a solid production partner in the NYC/Brooklyn area for the shoot (and potentially edit) that could keep a 2-day shoot somewhere in the $40k range? I know, that number pains me as well...
