Are you curious about the working relationship between SAG-AFTRA members and independent filmmakers? This workshop will provide actors and filmmakers an opportunity to learn and understand each other’s world. Topics will include the history, benefits and eligibility requirements of SAG-AFTRA, an overview of our Low Budget and New Media Contracts and how regardless of the budget, there is a contract that will allow filmmakers to use SAG-AFTRA talent in their project.
