Hiring Actors for Your Indie Film


Working with SAG-AFTRA can feel like an intimidating prospect for any first-time filmmaker, and SAGindie exists to educate producers about the ins and outs of hiring professional actors for low-budget films. SAG-AFTRA will introduce a new Short Project Agreement in August of 2018, covering short form projects for theatrical and new media platforms. With the introduction of this new contract, SAGindie can explain the changes and what it means for content creators. In addition to demystifying the SAG-AFTRA signatory process overall, this workshop can shed light on the new agreement and clear up any questions from filmmakers and new media creators.
