Film Crew


Rates vary between productions and budgets. I'm happy to negotiate rates on any project but as a rule of thumb I tend to follow the guidance set out by the media and entertainment union, BECTU, for Film and TV editor rates.



A guideline to the terms I usually provide if a contract is not in place.




Confirmed bookings (where the provider of the service has agreed in writing to accept the work and not accept other work for the agreed dates) are subject to a 50% cancellation fee of up to two weeks. A booking will be considered confirmed if not cancelled in writing 5 business days before commencement. Employers should bear in mind that these overtime and cancellation terms are the assumed terms of employment. Employers must inform the editor or agent if they wish to agree on a variation.


Any interruption to work must be agreed in advance by both parties and will be subject to a minimum 50% retainer and based on the average fee paid in the preceding month, including any kit fees or overtime.


A minimum of one week in writing for both parties.


Payment terms
Within 14 days of invoice or the next scheduled payroll run, whichever is the sooner. Payment after 30 days is subject to statutory late payment charge and interest.


Working week
Will consist of 5 days of up to 10 hours per day unless otherwise agreed.


Any items provided by the client or hired to the client must be covered by the company’s insurance. Travel insurance must be provided by the client for international bookings.

For film and TV work we can start the conversation directly first, then finalising contracts and rates will all be done via my agent to keep things official and easy.
