Spoke at length with a veteran director a few weeks back and discussed the rates for sheet timing that have not moved for several years. Any particular reason this rate doesn't change? Thanks Steve-
The rates for animation and timing directors in the TAG Collective Bargaining Agreement have gone up 3% a year over the past three years. Here are the current rates:
Disney Animation Director (journey hourly rate): $44.846
Disney Timing Director (journey hourly rate): $42.995
Sheet Timer: (journey hourly rate): $36.058
Like I say, these rates have increased each year for as long as I've been here. They go up again on August 2.
Anyone who's being underpaid on an hourly, daily or weekly basis -- the rates that are listed in the CBA -- should contact me. I'll be happy to file a grievance.
