How much can a Video Assist expect to earn for a 12 hour shoot on a music promo in the UK?

Hi,

Is it an APA shoot?

If so, lots.

If not, probably zero.

The APA is the Advertising Producers Association, who BECTU used to have a Pay Agreement with. The agreement lapsed in 2002, but the rates of pay are still more or less adhered to.

A Video Assist operator should get between £240 and £292 for a 10hr day, according to BECTU's recommended Commercial rates. What you actually get is anyones' guess....
