Low & No-Budget Production

Although no agreements exist to cover this sector of production, the Camera Branch is keen to make sure crew know their rights & aren’t subject to abuse.  An action plan for this sector is under development, you can contribute to the consultation by downloading the document here. In the meantime there is a useful resource [archived link here] for information about your rights at work and a handy phone-sized Fact Card here.

Members considering work in the Low/No-Budget (or any other) sector are advised to check BECTU’s ‘Ask First’ list before accepting an engagement (BECTU log-in required).

Please also go to the Get Involved page & contact the Branch if you have specific queries – we’re here to help.



We are developing a questionnaire to examine terms and conditions for this sector.
