Your local sponsors special SAG-AFTRA events throughout the year. Don’t miss out! Check back frequently to stay connected and informed about your union’s activities.
As part of a series of events focusing on casting opportunities for actors who have been historically overlooked in the entertainment industry, Casting Society of America (CSA) Diversity Committee will focus this month on *transgender performers. Performers will be given an opportunity to do a two-page prepared scene in front of a panel of two to three CSA casting directors. Please note, the reading will be taped and the reading is NOT for a job opportunity.
Are you an actor who wants to make a short film? Now is your chance. SAG-AFTRA is here to help you learn how to make your brilliant short film. Each session will be on a Monday night from 6 - 9 p.m., and is presented by members of the local independent film community. Here's a sneak preview of this four-week intensive series:
Week 1: Scriptwriting, fundraising and budgeting (Oct. 23)
Week 2: Selecting equipment, casting, crew hiring (Oct. 30)
Week 3: Contracts, locations, production (Nov. 6)
You're invited to attend the Chicago Singers Collective's debut performance of their original production OREO on October 23.
OREO will feature a wide variety of hit songs from the 1960s that are considered commentaries on the social climate of that era. And through these powerful songs, OREO will tell the story of the tension, battles and triumph of that era.
You won't want to miss out on this electric story and brilliant showcase of talent that parallels our social issues of the present day.
When: Wednesday, October 25, 2017 from 7 - 9 p.m. EDT OR 7 - 9 p.m. PDT
Where: If you are interested in attending one of these meetings via webinar, please contact your local office by the end of the day on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017.
