IMAGE_ Get paid what you deserve_ Local 802 presents a seminar about the union_s media contracts.
If you were called for a recording session, would you know how much you should be paid? How about if you wanted to produce an album - do you know what options exist to fit your budget? Do you know how session payments and residuals work if you've appeared with a guest band on a late-night show? How about back-end payments for film scores? Or, what if you're at the movies and you hear a track you played on?

The Local 802 Electronic Media Services Department is launching a series of educational seminars and discussions to help guide musicians through these often-complicated questions.

Join us on Sept. 12 at 5 p.m. in the Local 802 Club Room for the first of these events, as we meet to discuss the AFM Theatrical Motion Picture and Television Film Agreements, which are currently extended through April 2019. We'll discuss topics such as wage and benefit calculations, B-7 report filing, new media and Internet series, low budget qualification, sidelining, secondary markets, and anything else related to the world of films.

For more information, e-mail us here or call (212) 245-4802, ext. 162.
