Careers>Pay Rates Survey

The purpose of this page is to try to establish standard fee scales for Actors, Extras, Models & talent in Thailand. We will scour the web, & industry FB pages, talk to agencies and industry insiders and post our findings here. This is not necessisarily what we pay ourselves. Every job is different and the final rates are detirmined by the end-client. This page will be updated regularly.

Have your say. Please post comments on our Facebook page

 

Commissions: The prices below are assumed to be "before" 30% Agency commission is deducted, however, they might also be nett fees. The problem being that this is usually not stated in job-ads. Where they are stated, we add either (Nett) or (Gross).

 

Sometimes you will see BG before the amount. This means Baht Gross (Expect a 30% commission to be applied).
