    Welcome to Filmmaker Forum!

    Beginning directors may not get paid at all, especially for directing a short film. The ones at the top, of course, make many millions of dollars.

    The Directors Guild of America (DGA) sets pay rates for their members, which you can see here:
    https://www.dga.org/Contracts/Rates-2018-to-2019.aspx

    But many low budget movies are not DGA, so it's simply a matter of negotiation between the producer(s) and director.
