Dream job

July 14, 2022

Some compensations for star independent professionals in the movie industry are quite jaw-dropping. For example, here are the highlights from Robert De Niro’s contract for the “Savage Salvation” movie, according to Los Angeles Times:

  • $11 million for 8 production days (incl. pre- and post-production)
  • Round-trip private air transportation on Gulfstream IV jet
  • Right to retain all nonrental costumes, apparel, clothing, props, prosthetics and wigs after picture lock
  • Travel, per diem, ground transportation and accommodations at Ritz-Carlton for personal trainer
  • Travel, per diem, and accommodations for personal assistant
  • Seven-day vacation for De Niro and his family at Ritz-Carton following production with all expenses
  • One round-trip private jet flight between NY and LA… — and much more

As the personal-finance writer Ramit Sethi commented on Twitter: “This is one of the most insane contracts I have ever seen.”
