become a “comrade”

reasons to be represented by us

protection

The European film industry is riddled with bad business practices and lacks unions to protect the smaller players. We want to change that by protecting all our “comrades” from abusive and unethical working conditions.

Better rates

We help you navigate the murky waters of contract negotation.
By setting up contracts through our laywers and working out rates and terms for you, we want to make the process easier. Entirely for free – no hidden costs.

better gigs

Get access to training programs in our commercial workshops and courses at a discounted rate, as well as free exclusive trainings. Our sales team enables you to work on projects outside of your usual field and network.

Equal Opportunity

We never disclose gender, name or age of the comrades we refer to our clients. We only select by qualifications for a job. This helps us prevent our comrades from being unfairly black listed or discriminated.
