The Memoranda of Agreement for the 2019 SAG-AFTRA Commercials and Audio Commercials Contract are now published and available for download, along with the JPC Summary of Agreement.

The rate increase for talent is 6% and the new Pension & Health rate is 19%. Both increases became effective as of April 1st, 2019.

Please reach out if you have any questions on the new agreement provisions. We’re happy to help estimate new productions or calculate any retroactive increases.

Your Production Team

Happy Spring!

The SAG-AFTRA Commercials Code for TV and Audio will expire on 3/31/19

Bonefide is excited to keep you informed during the current negotiations and to help you plan for upcoming productions under the new 2019 contract.

Preparing talent figures for the new SAG-AFTRA agreement is no easy task. Adequate budgeting will help to mitigate those challenges and Bonefide is here to help!

We’ve included some tips below.

New Productions:
Schedule as many commercial productions before the March 31st deadline, particularly if they are a big campaign or feature expensive celebrity talent. 

Projected increase:
Plan to add 10% to current rates for productions that will occur after April 1, 2019.

Protect Existing Commercials:
Start negotiations for new MPU’s as soon as possible – to ensure that broadcast rights are maintained regardless of what happens during the negotiations.

Celebrity Contracts:
Celebrity negotiations can be tricky during a contract renegotiation. Bonefide is here to assist with negotiating favorable terms into celebrity agreements to give advertisers more control in the event of a stoppage.

Happy Holidays and Seasons Greetings!

As an extension of our Holiday Greeting to you – our valued clients, colleagues and friends, we wanted to share the power of giving.

This year, Bonefide has chosen three 501c3 animal rescue organizations and made contributions to support the incredible work they do, their dedication and commitment to animal education and rehabilitation, and their goal for adoption and loving companionship for every animal.

We wanted to showcase these folks for you – not only to spotlight the angels they are but with the hope that you will also consider giving generously to support them and the animal communities they serve.

From the animal lovers at Bonefide|Productions,

Happy Holidays!
