SAG-AFTRA: Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. An organization of professional performers dedicated to truth, justice and the pursuit of “motivation.”
Indie: A motion picture that is financed by sources outside the studio system.
SAGIndie: A gentle and loving union between the hard working thespians of the world and the passionate filmmaking mavericks who buck the system. Since its formation in 1997, SAGIndie has been traveling to film festivals, trade shows and conventions spreading the word: Just because your film isn’t produced by a studio doesn’t mean you can’t use professional talent. In fact, input from indie producers continues to help SAG-AFTRA revise and improve its five low-budget agreements to make it even easier for filmmakers to use SAG-AFTRA actors, regardless of their budget. If you’re going to compete with the big boys you need all the help you can get. So go on, and take advantage of SAG-AFTRA’s vast pool of well-trained talent for your next project. They can always find their mark, pick up cues and in the end save you time and money.
SAGindie is made possible by a grant from the Screen Actors Guild-Producers Industry Advancement & Cooperative Fund and the letter “R”.
