Ultra Low Budget Sag Agreement

Short project agreements include films with a total budget of less than $50,000 and a maximum duration of 40 minutes. Unlike other SAG daily allowances, the salaries of the players are completely negotiable. In fact, if you put a pencil on it, regular SAGs TVs is a better deal for even low-budget independent producers! The prices of the daily and weekly headliners under this agreement are set at 35% of the scale of the basic agreement.

A few days before the start of the main photography (when they are the most vulnerable!) Sag`s going to suddenly ask for a $20,000 cash deposit.

You don`t have the money and SAG shuts you down. Later, if you`re lucky, maybe you and SAG will negotiate a deal and you can start all over again. Maybe your crew is still here, maybe not. What about occupation? SAG`s unwritten policy (as any hard businessman would do) is always to wait for the filmmaker to be the weakest and then nail it.
