2014 Sag-Aftra Basic Agreement

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. Under this specific theatrical convention, you can only hire SAG-AFTRA actors as lead actors, and the first 57 background actors recruited must also be unionized. If your production requires more than 57 background actors, the 58th recruitment and beyond should not be unionized and are therefore not covered by the terms of the theatre contract. If you are considering hiring a Principal Performer or background actor (and not having hired 57 other substantive actors) who are not yet members of SAG-AFTRA, you have 30 days after signing the contract to submit the Taft-Hartley report to your representative, with a headshot and CV, in order to grant union status and comply with the contractual rules. The low-budget agreement applies to films shot entirely in the United States, with a total budget of less than $2,000,000, but more than $700,000 planned for the first theatrical release. The agreement must be executed by performers at least three weeks before any work. 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. This is the main contract for non-dramatic television productions and outlines the responsibilities of producers working in this medium. 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).

These include studios, production companies, commercial production companies and even individual producers. Producers and companies that sign a contract or letter of contract with the EU in their area of competence are referred to as “signatories”. The Moderate Low Budget Project Agreement (MPA) includes non-episodic content productions that have been shot between $300,000 and $700,000 for the total value of the United States. The agreement must be executed by performers at least one week before any work. The MPA applies to films originally published in one of the following publications, but it is not necessary to publish them for the first time on one of the following points: the prices of daily and weekly headliners under this agreement are set at 65% of the basic agreement scale. While the main players are usually paid well above the SAG minimum, the lowest you can pay under this agreement is the lowest: there are 6 types of theatrical agreements. All are determined by the budget: when a company becomes a signatory, it accepts the working conditions of professionals represented, protected and custodians under basic contracts. These include the diversity of casting incentives under this agreement. 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. 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. The prices of the daily and weekly headliners under this agreement are set at 35% of the scale of the basic agreement.
