Audio, Video, & Media Package Production Rates


Electronic Media offers professional assistance for your video, audio, and media needs.  Staff and equipment costs are always charged back to the requestor if support is for any event with an admission fee--even if admission is on a donation basis. When no admission is being charged, staff time is charged back if the request is not supporting an academic program.

  • Calculate estimates by selecting your audio or video (includes audio support).  Add labor plus media if needed
  • The following examples represent our most common requests
  • Listed prices are Evergreen campus and Washington state rates

Labor Rates

The majority of our event staffing is done by highly-trained student crews, and our students work in groups of two or more. However, depending on staffing availability and the complexity of an event, staff labor may have to be planned for. Large, complex events can require multiple staff. Please contact a producer for a more accurate cost estimate.

Student $15/hour
Staff $35/hour

Additionally, please plan for at least two hours for setup and teardown in addition to the event run time. Depending on event timelines and complexity, setup and teardown may take additional time.

 Audio Support

The following are baseline prices for equipment and charged as a daily flat rate per setup. Multiple setups on the same day will be charged separately. Event and post-production labor charges are not included (see above for labor pricing).

Basic PA (Mackie cart) $60/day + labor
Intermediate Audio & PA support $120/day + labor
Large-scale Audio & PA support $300/day + labor

Most audio events can be supported by our basic PA rigs, which consist of purpose-built Mackie cart rigs with two speakers, two wired microphones, wireless microphone, CD player, and support for mobile phone and laptop playback.

Mid-sized events, such as panels, large speaking events, and multimedia events, are supported with custom equipment specifications. Large format audio support includes concerts, recitals, recording sessions, and other complex events requiring long-term planning, significant resource use, and staff oversight.

Please contact the Audio and Media Producer, Ben Hargett, for more information.
