In response to the safer-at-home mandates, production saw a shift to remote recording, particularly for voiceover performers. Outreach letters were sent to existing and potential signatories, addressing the flexible coverage and rates offered through the SAG-AFTRA Regional Commercials Code. With rates and use terms commensurate with localized placement and the simplicity of a one-page document to sign, the outreach encouraged employers to cover any ongoing “virtual” production under union agreements to further ensure that members continue to be protected and build their earnings and benefit contributions while recording from their home studios.
