Rates of pay for media commissions will vary according to the nature of the project and the commissioner, the status of the composer, medium, and most importantly the rights package required.
Bear in mind that you may not always be able to negotiate a fee but may be presented with a budget you need to work to. Generally the fee offered for a media commission will incorporate the cost of producing a recording as well as writing the music, so you will have to weigh up how long the work will take to complete.
