What if you could hire the best actors without any red tape? Here’s your chance -  Learn, listen, and explore how to work with professional actors without breaking your budget or burdensome paperwork. Find a SAG contract that works for you so we can custom-tailor your project – or just show up and see if we can find a solution for what’s holding you back.

In this interactive workshop you will:

  • Explore SAG’s low budget agreements (student, short film, feature, etc) and state film incentives for independent film producers
  • Discuss how SAG is changing with today’s times and technology
  • Learn how SAG staff can provide private tutorials and training for film students, up and comers, or non-union producers who want to sign with SAG
  • Share ideas about where you see obstacles and how SAG can create contracts that could work for you

This workshop is for anyone interested in professional film production at any level.  Even if you don’t feel ready to go SAG at this time, come anyway – you may be surprised by what you hear, and how we can help.
