Music playback Utility and Rates

Recommended Posts

Is there a contract rate for Music Playback operators?  I didn't see the position specifically listed in the ASA, so mostly wondering where they usually fall.  Also, if a sound utility operates playback for a scene, would that re-rate them for the day, assuming the playback rate is higher?


Under the ASA most playback Operators fall under the VTR category even though they aren’t the same thing. I usually try to get the same rate as the mixer although sometimes it’s just a little less. A utility should re rate to playback if that’s what they are doing however, you should hire a person specifically for that job. If your utility does it then you should get a different utility for that day, IMHO.
