is there any place where I can get the minimum union scale rate for all production crews for a feature ($500,000-935,000)?

I already checked Ny411, Mayor's office, DGA, Local 52, Local 600, producer's union etc, etc.

The local refused to share information to non members. This is fr a class project.

i would really appreciate the help.
Thanks.

Is yours a short film? Like a thesis short? For which film school? What festivals?

The union rates don't tier until $1mil. Under that its on a per contract basis. From my experience in NY it can vary from $200-$1200 for 10 hours for most of the jobs with the majority of non-union work around the lower end of that.

Gorilla Ratebook has the current rates for something like 81 unions. It's $30.
