Ultra Low Budget Programs 
Working with a low-to-no budget? A student film?  We’ve got agreements for that too!
The Union has established Ultra Low Budget Programs in order to allow Union Members and producers the ability to work together on low-budget productions while protecting the rights of the performers. Currently the Union offers three Ultra Low Budget Programs; Student Ultra Low Budget Program, 40 Under Indie Ultra Low Budget Program and the standard Ultra Low Budget Program.
