Depends on your level and the client's price expectations, however based in reality they may or may not be. I wouldn't go any less than $2000 and in this industry, that's low.

And this is stipulated on the fact you can do all the small little detail work there is in that video and match the quality or better.

Don't be ridiculous, there's no such thing as clients with a mindset based in reality. ;)

This is actually my biggest fear, i actually do not have a standard price for editing job, Sometimes i just try to bid the job for a fix price (at freelance site) (already set by client) i afraid if i charge too cheap or a bit expensive, and then will never get the job anymore
