Average VFX Artist fee for ultra low budget short film

Making short film with an off-screen explosion halfway through story. On explosion, screen goes white and fades back into aftermath of dust-covered characters and rubble-strewn street.

The cast, script and locations are all incredible so I really don't want a tacky explosion making the whole thing look amateurish, however the total budget (assuming we don't get funding) is little over a grand (pound sterling).

I've worked with VFX artists before but only on mutual projects that don't involve payment. How much would I be expecting to pay a freelance VFX artist to create a nice explosion effect for a single shot?
