My 5 year old daughter was just booked for an acting job (an
industrial/educational film) for Cisco Systems in San Jose. It is a
non-union industrial shoot and she was chosen for an acting
non-speaking role. Can you tell me what the going pay rates are for
something like this? I went to but those are only union pay rates.
There is no answer at this time.

Non-union acting rates vary from nothing (even for otherwise
professionally run gigs) to just a little under union rates. There
really are no accurate guidelines to give.

A friend of mine appeared in a small speaking role in a training film
for a large corporation. My friend was paid $50 for a day's work (most
of which was standing around doing nothing). Got a free lunch, too.

Whatever the pay rate is, it's unlikely that you'll be able to
negotiate the terms, so I suggest that you simply ask the person or
agency that arranged the booking.
