The SAG-AFTRA Los Angeles Conservatory offers a low-cost opportunity for members to hone and develop their craft through classes, workshops, lectures and symposia — all on the campus of AFI.
The Benefits: The workshops teach SAG-AFTRA members how to attain essential tools for their careers in a supportive, nurturing environment. In addition, Conservatory members are eligible to be cast in AFI student films, allowing you to gain vital on-camera experience.
The Workshops: Structured workshops are offered from October through May and include on-camera commercial and theatrical techniques, commercial and theatrical cold-reading techniques, voice-overs, improvisation and "Actors Evenings" with opportunities to meet casting directors, agents and other industry professionals in a seminar format.
Participation in the Conservatory is limited to SAG-AFTRA members in good standing. A small administrative fee of only $35 is required for membership.
Enrollment for the 2013/2014 season now closed.
Conservatory Committee: The Conservatory Committee works on both national and local levels to encourage supervise and create programs through the Conservatory, which benefit SAG-AFTRA members.
