Film Production costs

I have been writing short dialogue scripts recently and I would like to put some of them on tape, its purely a personal undertaking so I don't have a huge budget to work with.
I'm looking for some advice on costs for a cameraman and a sound man (both have to have their own equipment) and then a day rate for actors.

Any advice on this would be a huge help.

They're reduced rates for shorts. A camera man with his own equipment would be looking at 500 per day for a lot of things.

You might be better off finding like minded people who want to get some work done as opposed to hiring in professionals. Otherwise you could end up spending loads on it.

Maybe talk to an amateur drama group about acting in it.

Came here to say the same thing. Definitely the way to do it.
