2019 Movie Maker Calendar (#1 Seller)

2019 Producer Calendar  

Samples to the right from previous 2016/17 editions show parts of each Tool to indicate the layouts.  Each Tool is 8-1/2x11 and 20 mil laminated for ease of use and high quality.

This past summer SAG, DGA and WGA, again took 2.5% wage increases and increased fringes by another 0.5% for their pension plans. 

Our current and new editions are listed below.  We do have our 2019 calendars available as well.  Send an email if you have any questions.     Contact Cleve.

Teamsters Area Standards rates vary throughout the country.  We provide the Atlanta rates for both Features/TV and Low Budget as a sample, while also providing for reference the feature rates for New Orleans and Massachusetts. We have made a couple of minor changes, which should be helpful to our clients.

This edition also includes the new rates for Local 829 and Teamsters Local 817.

Information about our popular Calendars:

The Calendars

Movie Maker Calendar - 2019-21 - This 3-year calendar format was created for our clients, who need a longer view to the future.  Each one is "personalized" with your name; your name with company name smaller below; or company name alone.  The front-side displays a 15-month view of the current year (2019) + first 3 months of the following year (2020).  On the back-side, the following 2 years (2020 and 2021) are displayed (all 24 months), plus our popular "legend of holidays" for the current year (2019).  Work holidays for the USA, Canada, U.K. and Mexico are color-coded in all 3 years.  The Movie Maker Calendar is our standard for production and post-production scheduling. 

Producer's Calendar - 2019-20-  This 2-year calendar is also Personalized in the same way as the Movie Maker Calendar.   The 2-year Producer's Calendar covers all movie union work holidays in 4 countries for the years 2019 and 2020 (each year is a full page side on the double-sided calendar).   

Additional Notes/Information:  

We are not currently publishing an edition for Toronto.

With the new opportunities provided by state tax incentives legislation across the USA, the need to budget correctly for crews in these states is very important.  The Area Standards Tool sorts out different rates and jurisdictions for the IATSE (other than LA & NY jurisdictions).  It also has some of the Teamsters rates in frequently-used areas. If you’re shooting in the USA outside of LA or NY, you’ll want this Tool.

This status page is updated regularly to provide you with the latest information.
