Artist Terms and Conditions (updated February 2023)

Background

a) Celtic Casting Ltd (CC) is an employment agency that finds opportunities for our members to work primarily in the film, TV and advertising industries, directly with hirers (including but not limited to production companies) and through our clients (including but not limited to casting agents and casting directors).

b) All clients and hirers who work with CC enter into a contract with us prior to having access to our database of artists. CC will share your relevant personal information with its verified clients and hirers to find you work.

c) Where a job is introduced by one of our clients, CC will always collect payments on your behalf directly from the hirer to ensure you are paid promptly and efficiently through our payment process.

Authority

d) This Agreement is a legal Agreement between you (the “Member”) and CC. By subscribing to the services provided by CC you agree to the following Terms and Conditions.

e) By accepting these Terms and Conditions you hereby grant CC authority to enter into a contract with a hirer on your behalf.

Right to Work

f) You hereby undertake that you have the right in law to accept and undertake work in Ireland by virtue of your citizenship or immigration status. You must inform CC immediately if there is a change in your legal right to work.

Photographs

g) You are able to upload your own photos through our website for casting purposes. By uploading user photos to our system you grant us a worldwide non-exclusive licence to use such photos in any media for the purpose of finding you work until such photos are deleted from our system. You further indemnify us against any third party claims brought against us in respect of your user photos. Please note that where user photos are not your original work you need the permission of the copyright holder for our use of the photos under this paragraph. Photos of poor quality, copyrighted photos, or photos which are deemed offensive may be removed. CC reserves the right, to reject or remove any photographs that do not comply or where we judge the photo not to be of a good standard. You agree that at all times the photograph on your members account is an up to date representation of how you currently look. For members under 12 years of age, the parent or legal guardian agree to update the photos every 6 months.

h) In the course of registering you as an artist with CC, and at other times, we may commission our own photographs of you (“casting photos”). You hereby grant your consent to the use of your likeness in the casting photos in any media worldwide in perpetuity for the purpose of finding you work, and for the promotion of CC. Please note that you will have no right to use our casting photos for any purpose.

Working for Us

i) You are expected to behave in a professional manner at all times, both in your dealings with CC, with our clients, hirers and on set. This includes responding promptly to availability enquiries and check-in requests sent via CC, being reliable, polite and helpful on set including following directions in a timely manner and bringing the appropriate dress as directed. Failure to act in a professional manner, including lateness or not showing up, will result in termination of your membership at CC’s absolute discretion.

j) If CC obtains any complaints in relation to the work of the Member whether arising out of failure to turn up, punctuality, conduct or otherwise CC shall be entitled to decide to remove the Member from the Database and CC ‘s decision shall be final. No refund of any fees paid will be made in that event.

k) When you are booked for a day of work, you must keep the entire day free as shoots may start early and finish late.

l) Rates of pay and relevant union agreements for any job will be stated on the availability check sent to you. This is your opportunity to decline the offer of work if you do not accept the terms. After you have been penciled or booked for a job, you cannot be released solely on the basis of the rate of pay.

Commission / Rates

m) CC is entitled to charge you a commission for each job successfully placed through CC, which is deducted from each payment to you. The standard rate of commission is between 10% and 20%, but a different rate of commission may apply for certain jobs at CC’s discretion. If a different rate applies, you will be advised of it before being booked to work.

The fee is €70 for a one year adult membership and €40 for a one year minor membership. There is no joining fee. The fee will be deducted with your permission from a PAID SHOOT DATE. You will be notified in your AV check if this is happening. Membership fees will not be deducted without your permission. The fee is only deducted once per 12 month term.

n) CC reserves the right to increase or decrease the fees at any time. These price changes will be reflected on our website. Such price changes are immediately effective once they have been published on our website.

Payment

o) You hereby grant CC the exclusive authority to receive money on your behalf for all work booked through us. CC will invoice hirers weekly and aims for all payments to be received within 4 to 12 weeks of the relevant day of work. We are not able to provide individual updates on payments until 8 weeks have passed since the day you worked. In certain jobs, payment will be made directly with production, in such cases you will be notified before the job commences.

p) CC operates a weekly payroll process for any cleared funds, which are paid directly into your bank account by electronic bank transfer. Due to the timings of when funds are received and the weekly payroll, it may on some occasions take more than 10 days for a payment to reach you. It is your responsibility to ensure that we hold your correct bank account details via our online system, otherwise payments will be delayed until such time that we do.

q) CC will provide you with a remittance advice through our online system for each payment made to you, which states your total earnings and details any deductions made for taxes and for commission and administration fees.

r) In accordance with the Health & Safety in the Workplace Act 2005, the health and safety obligations in the workplace is the sole responsibility of the third party that engages you (generally, but not limited to, the Production Company).

s) CC can accept no liability whatsoever for any injury or harm sustained or caused to you, or any financial loss sustained, whilst travelling to or from or whilst engaged in any work introduced to you by CC.

t) It is the hirer’s responsibility as your employer to ensure that you have a safe place of work and that you are properly informed of any relevant health and safety issues. You must however take appropriate care of your own health and safety and co- operate fully with the hirer in their implementation of a safe place of work.
