On Wednesday July 10th, representatives from the SAG-AFTRA office in St. Louis will join the IFC’s regular Wednesday meeting for an information session.
SAG and AFTRA merged nearly a year ago and the new union, SAG-AFTRA, has a strong and growing presence in KC. SAG-AFTRA represents free-lance talent as well as radio and television broadcast talent (and camera operators and editors in some cases). Bill Hendrickson is one of the newly hired local SAG-AFTRA employees who specializes in showing small-budget independent-minded filmmakers how they can “go union” and get access to some incredible talent without breaking their budget. They will be talking about the differences between the two unions, different types of contracts and the requirements of both!
This is a great opportunity for Kansas City film community to get educated on working with SAG-AFTRA talent and how to make your SAG-AFTRA productions go smoothly.
