Any Canadians here who can give me a 'ballpark' idea on the cost(s) to hire a local Canadian Video Crew to shoot a manufacturing process? If I can determine a typical 'Day Rate' for a shooter, an Audio guy and a Grip, I can come up with a ballpark cost... which is all I need at the moment.

Penalty Cut in Song-Sharing Case Jul 10, 10, 5:51 a.m.
A Boston federal judge drastically cuts $675K penalty against grad student in song-sharing case
The Associated Press
By RODRIQUE NGOWI Associated Press Writer
BOSTON July 9, 2010 (AP)
A federal judge has drastically trimmed a $675,000 verdict against a Boston University graduate student who was found guilty of illegally downloading and sharing songs online.
Judge Nancy Gertner on Friday cut a jury's damage award against Joel Tenenbaum of Providence, R.I., to $67,500, saying it was unconstitutional and "wholly out-of-proportion."
Tenenbaum was sued by music companies who said he violated copyright rules. He admitted downloading songs between 1999 and 2007. The jury found him guilty and assessed the damage award last July.
His lawyers appealed, calling the award "severe" and "oppressive."
Gertner said the reduced penalty is still severe enough to deter illegal file-sharing and adequately compensate the companies.
A spokeswoman for the plaintiffs did not immediately return calls for comment.
Flying Car gets FAA Approval Jun 30, 10, 11:53 a.m.
The FAA has just awarded the Terrafugia Transition an exemption which will allow the 1,440-pound car/aircraft hybrid to fly under a "light sport" designation, even though it hits the scales at a hefty 120 lbs. more than the rules allow. A light sport pilot license only requires 20 hours of seat time - far less than what a full license would demand.
