Applications are now being accepted for the new season of the Screen Actors Guild Hollywood Conservatory — for a cost of only $25 to SAG members.
The Conservatory: Launched more than 35 years ago, the SAG Hollywood Conservatory offers a low-cost opportunity for members to hone and develop their craft through classes, workshops, lectures and symposia — all on the campus of AFI.
The Benefits: In addition to gaining invaluable acting tools, Conservatory members are eligible to be cast in AFI student films, allowing you to gain vital on-camera experience.
The Workshops: Workshops are offered from October through May and include on-camera commercial and theatrical techniques, commercial and theatrical cold-reading techniques, voice-overs, improvisation and "Actors Evenings" with opportunities to meet casting directors, agents and other industry professionals in a seminar format.
Participation in the Conservatory is limited to Screen Actors Guild members in good standing. A small administrative fee of only $25 is required for membership.
To Join The Conservatory: Download the form here or go to SAG.org/HollywoodConservatory where you can find the application as well. Hurry, the deadline is August 20.
Mail the application, a $25 check or money order made payable to the SAG Conservatory, a stamped, self-addressed, business-size envelope, and, if you wish to participate in castings for AFI student films, include two headshots and a resume, postmarked by August 20 to:
