This section contains the DGA agreements, including the Basic Agreement (BA), the Agreement on Live and Free Band Television Contracts (FLTTA) and the Commercial Agreement. It also contains the DGA Creative Rights Handbook and Rate Cards. We hope you find this section informative and useful, whether you are a member of the DGA or an employer. “The future is what motivates us and you see it in this agreement,” said Thomas Schlamme, President of the DGA. “Given that the change in streaming that we have been waiting for for so long is beyond the industry and new services continue to be brought to market, this crucial agreement, which increases streaming delays beyond the traditional level of television, is a great victory for our members thanks to our negotiating co-chairs Jon Avnet and Todd Holland and our intrepid chief negotiator Russ Hollander.

To put performance in the right perspective, the rest, combined with the benefits of the 2017 deal, which went from less than $15,000 in 2016, increased nearly five times and exceeds the average residues obtained in all markets for the most popular network series. Lower budgets for SVOD series are now included in the new contract, which expands coverage to many additional series and ensures that the vast majority of members working in this field benefit from the terms negotiated by the DGA, residues and creative rights. • Residual wages and bases: general increases in salaries and residual bases of 2.5% in the first year of the contract and 3% for the second and third years of the contract.

The new agreement also contains a number of additional improvements with regard to SVOD functions, non-dramatic programmes and security. The latest DGA rates will come into effect on July 1, 2019 and will remain in effect until June 30, 2020. If the next season`s DGA rates fit in, we will update our blog. “The topics we have discussed in these negotiations have been complicated and intense,” Hollander said. “But in the end, we came out on the other side with significant gains in terms of SVOD, salaries, pensions and creative rights. This is an agreement for the future that will allow our members to work for many years and protect them. The DGA agreements include the Basic Agreement (BA), which covers projects recorded on film under an agreement with the Association of Motion Picture and Telefilm Producers (AMPTP) and applies to directors, assistant directors and unit production managers who work in film and television. The Freelance Live and Tape Television Agreement (FLTTA) applies to video and live projects and applies to directors, associate directors, internship directors and production associates who work in this field. This section also includes contracts and/or information on advertisements, documentation, experimental projects, industrial films, Internet/mobile projects, low-budget films, reality TV and DGA contracts with different TV channels.

The removal of “Grandfathering”, by which series that began in a previous contract with the production, continued to be governed by the terms of that previous contract in subsequent seasons.

Under the new agreement, stock protection will be removed, allowing more members working on the svOD series to benefit from the renegotiated terms.

The DGA`s negotiations with the management`s AMPTP, which took place on February 10 began, ended last Wednesday with a preliminary agreement.
