For the first time in South Africa, there is the possibility of a statutory mechanism that secures the economic content of the rights that performers are routinely required to transfer to the producer. Through the Copyright Amendment Bill we have a realistic hope of negotiating equitable contracts.
Financial Relief for Freelance Actors
SAGA is presenting a case to government, aimed at securing financial relief for freelance actors who have been negatively affected by the Covid-19 National Disaster.
Actors, please fill in the linked form to help us in compiling data for presentation.
This research is being conducted by the South African Guild of Actors. Data will be aggregated. Personal details are required for auditing purposes only; they will remain confidential and will not be handed over to any 3rd party other than independent auditor if required.
Once this research is concluded, names and contact details will be scrubbed and only metadata will be disseminated.
The data collected will be processed and compiled into an integrated presentation together with SASFED in support of SAGA’s lobby to get financial relief for actors in relation to the Covid-19 shutdown, and within the broader slowdown of the economy.
Thank you for your support in this effort.
