Are you and a bunch of your friends getting together and making short films? Webisodes? Spec TV pilots? 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 and how to flip a non-union film to a SAG-AFTRA-covered project!
 
Ever wonder how to properly fill out a timesheet; how, where and when to sign your employment contract; or how to negotiate on your behalf? This is the workshop for you!
 
Space is limited. RSVP by March 22 to Kim Davis at kim.davis@sagaftra.org. Questions? 513.579.8668
