The SAG Hollywood Conservatory is having an open house and you are invited! The Conservatory offers SAG members an opportunity to hone their skills and develop their craft through workshops, lectures and symposia in a supportive and nurturing environment. Membership also allows you the option of submitting two headshots and resumes for our casting books which AFI graduate students use to audition and cast actors for their short film projects.
With the seating of the 2010-11 SAG National Board of Directors and the change of philosophic direction embraced by the electorate, the way should now be clear to begin a careful, thoughtful, inclusive and open discussion between SAG and AFTRA on the issue of creating a new union for the talent working in the entertainment and media industry.
