The film worker and the audiovisual worker not under a long-term contract to a production company or to a broadcaster as a full time employee are regarded as self-employed.
The main characteristics of the self-employment are based on the «provision of services» during a certain period of time which is usually completed once the production is over. The self-employed will be without employment and income while looking for another production.
This period of unemployment can vary from weeks to months. For tax and social contribution purposes the self-employed are obliged to carry the costs of:
