By Charles Ferrara

As you are probably aware by now, thanks to the periodic updates shared with us by the Louisiana Film Entertainment Association, the new film tax credit bill, Senate Bill 254, was introduced by Sen. J. P. Morrell and successfully approved by the Louisiana Legislature in the recent legislative session. The governor signed the bill June 16.

On July 15, 2017, your SAG-AFTRA National Board overwhelmingly approved and recommended a YES vote for the TV/Theatrical tentative agreement reached with the AMPTP. Eligible SAG-AFTRA members will receive a postcard in the coming days on how to vote electronically or by paper ballot on the proposed successor agreements covering motion pictures, scripted primetime dramatic television and new media production.

Dear Member,

We are saddened to inform you that stunt performer John Bernecker has passed away after sustaining an injury on the set of The Walking Dead in Georgia. John, a member of the New Orleans Local, died Friday. He reportedly fell from a balcony while rehearsing a fight scene on Wednesday. 

SAG-AFTRA sends its deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. 

The safety of our members is SAG-AFTRA’s highest priority. The union will work with authorities and monitor the investigation into the incident.

In unity,

SAG-AFTRA
