After paying the bills and returning any investment offered by funding partners, the company takes 10% net profit in order to keep running.
50% of remaining net profit goes to the crew, which is split equally.
The remaining 50% goes to the cast, who are tiered as Primary Cast, Supporting Cast, and Extras, and who receive a cut accordingly.
