SAG-AFTRA’s New Media Department
New Media is a multifaceted department within SAG-AFTRA, administering the SAG-AFTRA New Media and Interactive Media Agreements and advising and participating in all aspects of new media as it pertains to all SAG-AFTRA collective bargaining agreements. The Department also provides the Union and its members valuable insights into the implications of emerging technology.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call our department at (323) 549-6446. Also, please visit the Production Center, where one may find answers to common questions and templates for required SAG-AFTRA New Media paperwork. You may also begin the process of becoming signatory to the SAG-AFTRA New Media Agreement by visiting osa.sagaftra.org and completing an online application.
Signing a New Media Project
If you are creating a project originally produced for new media, the first step to becoming signatory is to complete the online signatory process application. For assistance, please contact the New Media Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (323) 549-6446.
You may also choose to become signatory through our traditional process by completing this Preliminary Information Sheet and Pre-Production Cast List and submitting them via email to email@example.com or via fax to New Media Contracts at (323) 549-6500. The traditional signatory process, however, will take longer than the online process.
