New rates for major features with budgets over £30m

A new agreement on Lighting Technicians' pay has been reached between Pact and BECTU. This is effective from 1 April 2018 for all Major Motion Pictures with budgets in excess of £30M; rates are set for the three years until March 2021. A copy of this agreement can be found here (you can also pick up the document if you scroll to the bottom of this page). 

These pay rates should be read in conjunction with the new conditions agreement for Major Motion Film Agreement introduced on 2 April 2018.

To aid calculations for OverTime on +£30M Major Motion Pictures, the Committee has compiled a PDF with rates for both Shooting and Rigging crews.

This document was sent to PACT and The Production Guild on the 17 April for approval, however, as of 10 May 2018, we have not had confirmation that they agree with our figures, but we reccomend you apply these rates until further notice.

The document can be found here or in the downloads section below.

Feature films with budgets under £30m

The Lighting Technicians branch has produced banded Minimum Recommended Rates to offer advice to members working on feature films of varying lower budgets.

The Lighting Technicians Feature Film Rate Card shows all rates for features of all budget levels in one document. (Again, use the link or scroll down to access the document).
