Services & Fees

EdTech Productions is a cost recovery center within Rice University, and our services are available to Rice organizations.  We hope you'll find our prices very reasonable. We can only bill to a Rice fund and org.  The following prices reflect fees charged to most Rice accounts.  Please contact us for pricing for projects that are to be billed to the Jones Graduate School of Business, the Baker Institute for Public Policy, or the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies.

Media Events

Our hourly rates are $42.50 - $77.50 per person per hour.  Additional overtime charges may apply for after-hour and weekend events; this support is based on staff availability.
