I have my first union gig, as a 2nd AC; Ive worked union as an electric (so I understand the environment), and non-union as an AC. I just dont know what may be different going to union as an AC
Like on the electric side of things, you dont have to keep up with hours etc. (thats the best boys job), you just sign the papers and get paid. But what is the responsibility of the AC in that regard? Do I track my own hours, turn in a timecard everyday or what, and who do I give it to?
Im used to saying yes to a flat day rate send an invoice and thats it.
Also, am I responsible for anyone elses timecards (or whatever is involved), like the 1st or operators?
Is there anything major I should know thats different from non-union camera work?
