How much should I charge to create a promo video for a friend?

I've been ask to edit footage to create a short promo video for a friend of mine who is a professional performer. She has all the video she wants me to use, and is content to have me use my Mac to produce a final product. Our market in Calgary is such that video production companies are not taking 'small' jobs from people as the demand from oil and gas, as well as other markets have
I am not a professional by any means, but am extremely proficient in video editing. The footage has already been shot, so it looks like some straightforward work.
I expect the video to be about 10min long when done, and will require going through 3 hours of her footage.
Obviously, the general rule of thumb (1hr per min of video) may not apply, as I didn't generate the video and as such have no idea what there is, and since it's not 'my vision'.
What is a fair rate to charge given I am not a professional?
