SAG-AFTRA (“Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists”) is a union representing more than 160,000 film and television artists, radio actors, video games, radio and television advertisers, news anchors, singers and recording artists (both royalty artists and background singers) , performers in commercials and actors working as stuntmen and specialized acts. It is dedicated to protecting the interests of its members and improving wages, working hours and working conditions, and it does so through a series of contractual agreements (some of which are grouped above) applicable when one of its members participates in a production. What is a collective agreement? Collective bargaining is a kind of negotiation process between employers and a group of workers with the common goal of setting conditions and reaching agreement on the regulation of wages, working conditions, benefits and other aspects of workers` compensation and workers` rights. 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 that are 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: there are 6 types of theatrical contracts. All are determined by the budget: under this agreement, the signatories are contractually obliged to cooperate with the main players of SAG-AFTRA and up to a maximum of 30 for the background. SAG-AFTRA members can only work on a project if the studio, production company or producer has signed the corresponding SAG-AFTRA agreement. The elusive elusiveness could result in hefty fines. While this article attempts to lay the groundwork for the common treaties, it is by no means a complete summary or a complete list of SAG-AFTRA agreements. There are always areas of shadow after the state and the project, and you should always read your agreements carefully and check them out.
