There are no audiovisual unions at this time, or fixed rates for services or labor. There are a number of Colombian associations working to ensure the wellbeing and development of the audiovisual industry.
However, in the following chart you will find listed some of the principal crew members in order to have a general costs reference in our country. Rates were calculated through an average crew sampling of film budgets from nationally certified projects. This sample included 19 different films shot between 2006 and 2011 which consists of very low budget films and larger scale international co-productions. The aforementioned average was calculated by the Ministry of Culture’s Film Office. These rates were compared to the ones given by Colombian production companies. According to their observations some of the numbers were adjusted.
