Welcome to the public beta release for SAG-AFTRA’s online signatory process.
Right now, producers can COMPLETE the entire signatory process online for five SAG-AFTRA signatory agreements (so far!):
- New Media Agreement
- Student Film Agreement
- Short Film Agreement
- Corporate/Educational & Non-Broadcast Agreement
- Ultra Low Budget Film Agreement (this agreement requires additional financial assurances)
If your project does not fall under one of these agreements, please fill out a Preliminary Information Sheet to get started.
Since this is our preliminary release, we are looking for your feedback and assistance in finalizing product function and features. Please understand that since this approach is still new, we may encounter some delays in processing your application. For that reason, if you are up against a tight deadline, it might be more effective to contact us via telephone first.
Let us know right away if you encounter any technical issues, or need our help to complete the process in a timely manner. We can be reached via Webhelp, via telephone at (323) 549-6789, or webchat (select the blue and grey icon icon near the top of your screen) during normal business hours (9 a.m. – 5 p.m., PT, Monday – Friday). Also, the union may reach out to you, after you’ve tried the application, to get your feedback. We really appreciate your participation.
The online clearance process is provided for casting professionals to ensure that performers being employed under the union’s collective bargaining agreements are in good standing with the union.
