However, a wrinkle imposed by the SAG is that actors under the protection of the guild will be guaranteed some compensation (regardless of actual working hours), and in return, the film producer gets the exclusive right to use their image in the film. The producer must also agree to pay all DEE contributions, such as the actors` health and pension plans.
