An expert panel will be on hand to answer questions and explore topics such as learning what it takes to produce your own movie or webisode with top SAG-AFTRA talent; how new media is impacting the industry including new avenues for producing content; how to get your ideas to come to fruition; and alternative funding for distribution. You will also come away with first-hand information about the exciting changes happening in the Utah market and how to equip yourself with the tools to compete and prepare for a future in this changing industry.

This meeting will provide the members the opportunity to hear a report via webinar titled Commercial Trends Every Performer Needs to Know About, and you will also receive an update on the Gross Ratings Points (GRP) Study and other important topics related to the Commercials Contract. A group discussion will follow the presentation, affording staff the opportunity to hear membership’s response to these findings. We look forward to your participation as your input is vital to our negotiation preparation.
