For one weekend only, you will learn from the greatest producers in film, television and digital media. Session sign-up has begun and fills up fast!

On Saturday, SAG and SAGindie are sponsoring Big Names, Small Budgets: The Influence of Professional Talent on Indie Projects. This panel will discuss the process of hiring talent, the contractual obligations that come with using professional actors, "diversity in casting" incentives, and the influence these factors can make on an indie project’s distribution opportunities. Among the panelists are actors and SAG National Board members William Mapother and Clark Gregg, writer/director Dito Montiel, SAGindie National Director Darrien Michele Gipson, and SAG Deputy National Director for Contracts Ray Rodriguez. Moderating the panel will be Mark Friedlander, SAG’s national director of new media. As head of the New Media department, Freidlander oversees all of the Guild’s new media policies, procedures and contracts, and provides guidance to senior staff on all issues relating to emerging technology and associated business trends in the entertainment and advertising industries. 
In addition to dozens of panels, networking sessions and roundtables, for the first time ever, you can meet with more than 300 film commissions from six continents and 40 countries with $2 billion in financing, development funds and tax incentives.
