Residuals

Residuals have been around since 1953. A lot’s changed since then.

Whatever the size of your title library, it’s essential to pay your film and TV residuals on time and per the applicable reuse formulas, to remain in good standing with the guilds. We process residuals for some of the top networks and studios in the world. The key to our success? Flexibility.

Say When

You decide when to cut checks.

Why should your residuals service decide when you make your residual payments to talent? We provide estimates of your run in advance… and only pull the trigger when you say go. This not only gives you the rightful power to time your payments as you need, but also saves you vast amounts on reprint charges. Our transparent pricing means you’ll never be charged a hidden fee for estimates.

Future-Looking Formulas

Streaming, Streamlined.

SVOD, Electronic Sell-Through, Download To Rent, Ad-Supported Streaming… audiences consume content in all different ways today. And guild residuals agreements have evolved to match. SAG-AFTRA, DGA and WGA all have complex contractual formulas for calculating talent reuse payments on the platforms of the modern landscape.

We’ve developed our residuals payment system to adapt along with talent agreements, making us a leading residuals payment provider for both original streamed content and reuse on streaming channels.
