Are you and a bunch of your friends getting together and making short films? Didn't think you needed to worry about being under contract? Well this is your chance to ask all of your questions about working in low-budget films. And, you'll probably get the answers to some questions you haven't even thought of yet. Remember: As a SAG-AFTRA member, you need to be under contract for all work that you do. This includes student films, your best friend's pet project, and your self-produced short film and "no-budget" features.

Find out what to expect on set and how these films differ from the studio features and episodic television shows that you are used to. Learn where to find out about these auditions, how to properly fill out paperwork, and how to flip a non-union film to a SAG-AFTRA-covered project!

RSVP by May 17 to Chelsea Danley at: chelsea.danley@sagaftra.org. Space is limited.
