Have you ever wanted to hire SAG-AFTRA performers for a project, but were frightened away by the prospect of filling out “All that union paperwork”?  Are you new to filmmaking and curious about the various low-budget agreements offered?  The SAG-AFTRA Indie Theatrical and New Media Agreements have been created specifically to accommodate the needs of student & emerging filmmakers.  In this workshop SAG-AFTRA staff will discuss the process of walking producers, directors, talent and students through these contracts from “A to Z”!  Get the “inside scoop” on how you can hire union talent for your next production!

This workshop is a “must attend” for producers, directors, actors and film school students interested in educating themselves on the ease of using SAG-AFTRA contracts to hire the most highly skilled professionals available for future film and internet projects.
