Welcome to the New Orleans Local. We proudly serve members working in Louisiana, home to jazz, jambalaya and, of course, Mardi Gras and Jazz Fest; and Mississippi, birthplace of the delta blues. Be sure to explore these pages for all the great services and benefits available to you. Laissez les bons temps rouler (“Let the good times roll”)!
Welcome to the Big Easy. Our local SAG-AFTRA membership includes performers and broadcast staff who are committed to the highest standards of our industry.
For producers, the film industry is thriving as a major hub for studio and independent production. Our diverse locations range from bayou to bustling urban landscapes, sleepy Southern towns to city skyscrapers. You’ll find our professional talent pool appearing in such projects as Twelve Years A Slave, NCIS: New Orleans, Django Unchained,Treme, The Butler, The Magnificent Seven, The Breakout Kings and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.
Our local union is US so consider getting actively involved. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or wish to participate in the local board or a committee.
If you are a SAG-AFTRA member now residing in Louisiana or Mississippi, we encourage you to transfer to the New Orleans Local.
