SAGindie National Director Darrien Michele Gipson recently made an appearance on Scott McMahon’s Film Trooper Podcast to talk about casting SAG-AFTRA talent for indie films. Film Trooper covers tons of educational filmmaking info, so we were happy to shed some light on what it’s like for low-budget filmmakers to work with the union. (While the whole episode is worth a listen, Darrien’s interview kicks in around the 29:44 mark.)

Thanks to Film Trooper for inviting us on the show! Get more info from them at
