I have developed an online 2-minute x 52 Flash episode series, and a sponsor seems interested in placing a short commercial before each film in exchange for funding. I am more of a writer/creator type, so I am not accustomed to working with budgets - how much do I charge for such a spot? My work has been featured on the front page of YouTube & MySpace several times, so I anticipate that each short will get a minimum of 250,000 views online, but I'm not sure what that comes out to "sponsor-wise". Truthfully, I would prefer to get a flat fee for producing the short and hiring some freelancers to work on it, rather than funding it upfront and getting paid backend CPM/CPC. Does anyone have a ballpark?
