The SAG-AFTRA Commercials Department held an informational panel and review session with members at SAG-AFTRA Plaza on June 20. The Commercials 101 presentation covered a wide range of contractual information, such as rates, terminology, what to expect after booking and cautionary tales. The information was broken into easy-to-understand parts, separated by five-minute breaks, during which members had the chance to win union swag by answering trivia questions. All attendees left with a magazine, a rate sheet packet with examples of paperwork actors will encounter on set, and a deeper understanding of the union contract that protects them.
