Before the AFA, Freelancers were working in a sector without regulation. So, Producers were able to arbitrarily categorise themselves, without accountability. The creation of official tiers and fees solves this issue, with every CV being vetted by a small team of experienced Producers. So, when hiring a member of the AFA, employers will have a clear idea of a Producer’s experience just by looking at their tier.
