SAG Expands Low Budget Agreements
Effective July 1, 2005, thanks in part to input from independent filmmakers and actors, the SAG Low Budget Agreements will be modified to make it even easier to work with professional actors.
Some of the highlights include:
* A new agreement specifically designed for Short Films.
* Increased budget caps.
* Elimination or reduction of step-up fees.
* New production incentives.
For the first time, sample copies of all the Low Budget Agreements are available to download at http://www.sagindie.org/contracts.html Once you're ready to start the signatory process, you can download the initial paperwork directly online. To learn more about the new contract revisions and SAGIndie in general, visit www.sagindie.org.
