A: The legal rate is minimum wage ($10.00 per hour), which is referred to as $80/8 (hours). Every production must pay you that legally. But it is completely up to the production to pay what ever the budget is. Cut Above has relationships with MANY casting directors ranging from feature films, TV, Independent films, commercial, print campaigns, music videos & audience work. That said, it is very common to book production at higher rates: $80/8, $125/10, $150/12, $175/10. Some jobs also pay in cash, as opposed to voucher, always a good thing! In addition, once on set you can receive bumps and/or upgrades for things such as: wardrobe changes, meal penalties (hourly reimbursement given for missed meals after 6 hours), smoke, water, prop & mileage bumps, all requiring more money to your check!
