Selling Footage

Got a question. A filmmaker is looking to buy two different clips from me. One is a 30 second clip, the other is a 60 second clip. It's for a documentary and he's got a lot of corporate backing. He wants to use these clips both in the trailer and in the actual production.

My problem is I don't know how much to charge him for the clips. I want to charge a price that's fair, but also enough that I'm not taken to the cleaners or kicking myself later. Any thoughts?
