All categories are subject to the existing basic agreement and the television broadcasting agreement. As part of the television agreement, actors and background actors are covered for their work on the shows that signed the SAG-AFTRA television agreement. As part of the television agreement, there is a required quota of 21 substantive actors, and for all non-union actors who are hired, and the 22nd and over productions of substantive actors should submit the corresponding report by Tft Hartley, accompanied by a headshot and a CV. Basic agreements increased by 2.5% for projects under moderate and ultra-low low-budget agreements, as these rates are based on the percentages of the basic agreement. This is the main contract for non-dramatic television productions and outlines the responsibilities of producers working in this medium. HOWEVER, SAG offers various agreements that allow manufacturers to buy essentially “in bulk” depending on where the commercial is broadcast. Under this agreement, the signatories are contractually obliged to cooperate with the main players of SAG-AFTRA and up to a maximum of 30 people for the background. The prices of the daily and weekly headliners under this agreement are set at 65% of the scale of the basic agreement. While the main actors are usually paid well above the SAG minimum, the lowest you can pay the lead actors under this agreement is: although this deal seems to be perfect for your film, it is important to note that you must first release your film in cinemas to qualify. If your movie is released directly on a streaming service like Hulu, your SAG scale rates may fall under New Media.
Today, almost a hundred years later, SAG-AFTRA is still committed to organizing all work under their jurisdictions, negotiating the best wages, working conditions, health and retirement services, creating employment opportunities, enforcing contracts and protecting SAG-AFTRA members from unauthorized use of their work. However, the work of the Union is not possible without the cooperation of the hereditary industry, which is not part of the union, in particular the studio and production factories. Through collective agreements and subsequent contracts, SAG-AFTRA can govern and protect those who work in a performance role in the entertainment industry. This is probably also your SAG agreement if you shoot a wild spot. Unlike national or cable ads, wild ads are ads that appear in more than 20 specific cities. This agreement also requires that the remains be paid in accordance with subsequent guidelines and tariff calculations in accordance with the basic agreement, as soon as the residual requirements are met and payment is to begin. Because of the size and influence of the union, most major media companies have a collective agreement with SAG-AFTRA through the Association of Film and Television Producers (AMPTP).
