    1.DAY PERFORMERS: Watch This Video to See How the SAG Day Performer Online Payroll Course Works

      In my experience SAG Schedule A (Day Performers) and SAG Schedule B (Weekly Performers) are the basics for all SAG Payroll.

     

    In general, SAG payroll is the most complex payroll, and it is also the one Guild/Union that is on (almost) every film production in the USA.

    I want each student to really get the maximum out of this course, so I have taken the time to prepare 21 videos packed with an overall 2 1/2 hrs of practical information.

    The online courses have all the references you need in one compact course designed with lots of examples. The "right answers" are provided so that you can compare your calculations with prepared timecards right away.

    Wherever possible I have designed this online course to parallel my live weekend workshops - lots of practice with clear references to the SAG Codified Basic Agreement.

    All materials are supplied by download.
