Booking Fees: 15% of the Base Rate of any job. (New Rate as of Aug 6th, 2019)
For example, if you are booked on a job that is $250/10hrs, you will be charged $37.50. The Base Rate is the total minimum you are guaranteed at the beginning of the project. If you received overtime in addition to the guaranteed rate you will not be billed extra.
Verify Profile Fee : $40 Cash / $45 Credit/Debit
Coming to verify your identification is not mandatory, however, we find that casting directors prefer selecting talent that have had their identification and union status verified. A photo taken by our professional photographers is included free with your verification.
Updating Photo for Verified Members: $10 Cash / $15 Credit Debit
Verified members may update their photo by our professional photographer at any profile verification / Photo sessions. We announce all photo sessions by emailing all registered talent a few week prior to the photo session.
Declined Card Fees: $5
Credit cards are processed the day of the project shoot. If your card is declined you will be informed via mail. If you provide a valid credit card within 72 hours of this email you will not be charged a declined card fee. Our only goal is to keep all billing information up to date.
Confirming Late: $5
We expect all talent to confirm within 2 hours of receiving their details. Typically details are sent between 6pm and 8pm. We will always let you know if details will be exceptionally late and you should always let us know if something is going to prevent you from checking your email before 10pm.
Arriving Late to Set: $5
We just want everyone to be on time. When you are late, it affects the reputation of everyone involved in the casting process, including your coworkers.
Canceling on a Project: $20, $40
If you are booked on a project, and you cancel before you are emailed details, the fee is $20. If you are booked on a project, and you cancel your booking after you were emailed your details, the fee is $40. When you cancel, it takes time and effort to replace you. Please only accept jobs that you can complete. Cancellations may result in termination. Please consider our billing policies before you cancel on any job.
No-Show : $40 & Termination
If you do not show up for a project that you were booked on, and confirmed for, you will be billed $40 and removed from our active talent list. Nothing hurts the reputation of you, your coworkers, or Virgo Talent as much as not showing up for a project.
Leaving Set without Signing Out: $40 & Termination
If you need to leave set for any reason, you must discuss this with talent coordinator and be cleared.
