The FAA, or Film Artistes Association, section of BECTU represents the interests of background artistes.
Current FAA ratecard
The current FAA/PACT ratecard for background artistes came into force on 1 March 2017 and runs for three years from 1 March 2017 to 29 February 2020.
The agreed set of rates covers the standard day and night call, the shift call, fees for supplementary performances and services and travel allowances.
BECTU members should contact the London Production Division at BECTU head office with any queries.
Rates app for members
The FAA branch has produced an app to help members calculate their pay for a given job, with reference to the PACT/BECTU collective agreement.
Once members have downloaded the app, they simply enter the details of their engagement (length of day, travel, any special requirements for example) and the app calculates the sum due. Use of the app will not only help with accuracy but should speed up the checking out process at the end of a day’s shoot.
