in 2020 we created
reasons to be represented by us
We put ourselves between you and the claimant. Realisitically the powerdynamic on set won’t allow a crew member to take action against a production. We can and will defend you from being taken advantage of.
We help you navigate the murky waters of contract negotation. All our contracts and rates are above the collective labour agreement by VERDI. We also enforce the guidelines set by VERDI for you.
Since we certify our Comrades, we are able to put you on productions where you might not “fit” some producers eyes, based on your track record. We set standards for you, so you can confidently take new jobs.
We never disclose gender, name or age of our comrades until the client has signed the contract. We only select by qualification (based on our internal certifications) and availability for a job.
