Dear SAG-AFTRA New Mexico Members,

The new year has sprung! This year is already looking to be a record-breaker in terms of total production. There are at least eight feature films on the slate this spring plus new and returning TV series. And, like the past several years, New Mexico actors are being considered for recurring roles. It’s a great time to be an actor in New Mexico!

When we think of the “biz” side of showbiz, our checklist usually lists things like contracts, headshots and classes. Rarely do we think of legislation, but it is something that can have a drastic effect on our wages and opportunities.

New Mexico hosted three excellent events in one week in August. It began on Aug. 9 with a Low Budget Agreement and New Media Contract presentation for the local industry with SAG-AFTRA Regional Education & Outreach Liaison Cynthia Williams. It was gratifying to see a full house of filmmakers who were interested in the signatory process or receiving more information about contracts they were already using. The following evening, the SAG-AFTRA Foundation conducted a Casting Access Live Online session.
