A runner's job is to provide general and messenger services to the production as a whole and they should receive training and supervision on any animation-specific duties These rates do not include the cost of materials, special skills or specialist equipment and additional payment should be negotiated for these. If the work is to be done off the employer's premises, the rates should acknowledge the additional costs of space, heating, lighting, telephone, and other overheads. It may also be appropriate for work with extremely tight deadlines to have an additional premium applied to acknowledge the costs of this in terms of the individual's resources and time.
