Equity Film School Agreement

Filed under: Uncategorized — Chris Chaten @ 6:17 PM

I think the subject is much more complicated than some do. That`s why we took our own initiative and offered a compromise to the film schools in our region. The new guide contains a form of commitment (contract) for use with student filmmakers, as well as information on topics to be taken into account, cancellations and working hours. Download your copy or call Equity on 020 7670 0248. For your information, Equity have an agreement with the NFTV school and this could be applied by any film school that wanted. Equity took a very broad approach to film schools a few years ago, but they refused to get in touch with us. But in Bradford, they pay $100 a day for filming and rehearsal. I guess it would be very easy to tackle this problem by throwing the actor the real cost of burning a copy of the DVD for them (i.e. peanuts) in height. If the actor was also paid (even at low prices), then the actors would generally be in a much better position than they currently are. It could also help to get copies of the film (which I know is sometimes a sensitive subject), because it would be a transaction and not a favor. Just a thought.

For example, an actor came the other day for one of my movies and did a 5 o`clock photo shoot. His train ticket was $25 and his lunch was $5, amassed $30 which I paid. Does anyone know what capital rates are on a daily and/or weekly basis for actors working on a student film, please? I do not agree when you say that the responsible way to negotiate with the parties is that there are about 500-2000 film schools media schools that you give to almost every school giving a camera to a student and expects them to continue. It is simply unrealistic to expect every local branch of Equity to trade locally. Don`t destroy our agreement with them because of your own political agenda. >>>I don`t agree, the vast majority are not film schools, they are media studies or print courses, and I don`t take pity on them if they don`t have a budget, they have budgets to pay for all other qualified professionals who come into contact with their students, including tutors and cleaning staff. Most students don`t even learn to budget. As for the quality product, I don`t agree, when you read the bloody stories on this page, I can`t agree that they distribute quality products (with the exception of committed film schools) >>>>> As a student filmmaker, I`m curious to do so. If I were to have to pay actors, would I be able to eliminate the expenses they incurred? >>>I think we need to be realistic and understand that most of Mejia`s students are students and don`t go everywhere. The only students who will probably have some kind of film career are those from committed film schools that have a proven track record.
