Notification of Soft-release

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and ongoing support with the  Rate Card Project. 


This has been a highly complicated process, however we are very proud to advise  that the Screen Industry Rate Card Guides for all departments are now ready for  wider review by The Screen Guild members.  

This is a soft publish only. These cards are still a work in progress and need  more cross-departmental comparison and confirmation. Until then, these  cards are an unofficial guide which you may use to inform your negotiations,  however please do not refer to these documents as confirmed indications of  expected industry rates.  

The purpose of this release is to invite feedback from the wider member group in  order to refine the submitted rates so that we can ensure the correlated data is the  most accurate information possible.  

Each departments’ roles have been divided into the following categories: 

  • Management and HOD’s
  • Supervisors and Coordinators
  • General experienced Crew 
  • Assistants 
  • Runners 
  • Trainees 
  • Combos

If you feel your role has been placed within an incorrect category, please email us to  advise. 


If you have any comments or feedback relative to your role category or a rates value  entry for your specific departmental role, please get in touch with us via email at: 

If you are submitting information relative to a rate entry, we will require the following  information to be included in your email: 

  • Your Department.  
  • Your Role.
  • Which budget band your rate submission relates to. 
  • 3 x Proof of payment - in the form of invoices or bank statement entries to  verify any rates value in question.  

NB: Changes will only be made by majority consensus.  

We thank you in advance for your valuable participation.  


The rates displayed on these cards are NOT representative of the minimum rate  guide that will be required for the occupational contracts under the Screen Industry  Workers Act.  


Please be advised that these are living documents that have not been finalised  for general use with the sector until wider review has been submitted.  

Negotiation remains at the centre of agreed crew rates. Even when finalised,  these cards will remain broad guidelines only.  

Crew members will still be required to determine through negotiation with  production where they sit within the displayed rates guidelines.  

We thank all members in advance for supporting this process. 

The Screen Guild Rate Card Committee.
