Industry Pay Scheme Changes for Film & TV Extras

Posted by: William on Thursday 15th January 2015
Example of Industry Pay Scheme

Some of the industry pay schemes and agreements for background artists, walk-ons and extras have been updated on our website. This article explains what's new and what you can expect to get paid working as an extra. 

Changes to Pay Schemes & Agreements

Some industry pay schemes have now been updated on our website. This includes rates in the BBC Equity Ageement, ITV Equity Agreement, PACT and TAC agreements, with the majority of them increasing slightly. That's great news for extras, background artists and walk-ons as it means that the next time you work for a production using one of these schemes, you can expect a little more!
