SASA is an agreement between the Australian Writer`s Guild (AWG) and Screen Producers Australia on the agreed terms of payment for a writer`s services and the acquisition of work rights for Australian television series and series. Screen Producers Australia (SPA) and Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA) have agreed a new contract on interpreter rights after three years of negotiations. Our suite of negotiated contracts and bid contracts is regularly updated and is available to members under exclusive license or on a project basis. These resources are the copyright of Screen Producers Australia, which is owned with respect to negotiated agreements and is entirely related to model contracts. The unauthorized use of these resources is a violation of Screen Producers Australia`s rights and is being monitored appropriately. The AFFCA is a common collective agreement between Media Entertainment Arts Alliance (MEAA) and Screen Producers Australia, which covers agreed pay rates, terms of employment and residual rights and payments for all performers in Australia. ATRRA allows producers to buy the rights to take advantage of an actor`s performance. The agreement includes games and TV replays, streaming rights, percentage of sales in Australia and overseas and allows to calculate an actor`s salary. Let`s hope that some of the thousands of hours of classic Australian drama series that still live in ABC coffers that go back 50 years will finally be rebroadcast? Actors Equity`s agreements, so far rather restrictive, have made it easier and cheaper to manage old UK/US series such as Birds Of A Feather, The Bill and Murder, She Wrote.
Screen Producers Australia and Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance have agreed on a new agreement that offers greater flexibility in the reading of Australian programmes and offers players new pay charges for SVOD and catch-up games such as iview.
