Before you immerse yourself, it is important to create a detailed budget of your production, as this determines your specific SAG rates. Before you can even roll the camera, you need to send SAG a budget and a copy of your script. The main values can be difficult to calculate and vary depending on prestige, contract negotiations, an actor`s experience and the nature of the role that is played. For background actor rates, it is simpler, but it nevertheless requires careful consideration when budget planning can be added to a background player tax as bumps, wardrobe modifications and accessories. The SCALE of SAG for performers depends on the application of these agreements, but may also vary depending on the contractual subtype, production category and other factors. Below, you won`t find an exhaustive list of all possible SAG rates, but you will help budget for the current minimum SAG rates: when a company becomes a signatory, it accepts the working conditions of professionals represented, protected and retained under basic contracts. This includes: Under this agreement, the signatories are contractually obliged to cooperate with the main players of SAG-AFTRA and up to 30 people for the background. The residues are based on formulas that take into account, for example. B of the contract that came into force during the year, the production time, the mode of production and the market on which the product appears. All performers recruited or valued under a main performance agreement whose performance remains in the finished product are entitled to leftovers. The substantive actors do not receive residues and are not entitled to leftovers, unless they are revalued as lead actors.
Fortunately, we`ve put together this comprehensive guide that sticks to 2020 SAG rates so you can decide what you might owe a lead player. Under the MPA, leftovers should not be paid unless the project is initially exhibited outside of one of the aforementioned first-publication contracts. In situations where such a first exposure takes place, the rates are determined by the corresponding residual provisions of the SAG-AFTRA basic agreement and the SAG-AFTRA television agreement. But if you have a cent more, you`re in the right place. Here are the SAG 2020 quotas for actors on television. We must keep in mind that these awards are for cable and streaming players. For networked shows, producers should plan an additional 15 percent. 1. SAG Film Price SAG Basic Theatrical Scale: 1,030.00 USD / Day | $3,575.00 /WEEK SAG Low Budget Scale: 65% of base rates.

This does mean however that you will also have to pay these days for the rest of the production. As part of this agreement, there are a multitude of incentives for casting. SAG-AFTRA offers a casting incentive for low-budget filmmakers who can increase the entire range of theatrical agreements, which would increase prices, and other payments that a low-budget film might not afford. For more information on what is qualified for diversity, see Section 3 (a) of the Low Budget Agreement. For television work, the remnants begin as soon as a program is redeployed or published on video/DVD, pay TELEVISION, broadcast television, basic cable or new media. The residues are based on a gross revenue formula for all effects of free TV series. Background officers are not permitted to receive remnants for work performed under the SAG-AFTRA Basic And Television Agreements, unless the background Actor is re-enhanced to the interpreter category. If he/she is still talking about five lines or less, the remaining program fees are five lines or less of a program fee.
