Now that SAG and AFTRA merged, 2 of my actors are affected. Looking on SAGs web site, I think I found a contract that actually applies to most people on this forum. The SAG Short Film contract is for films of 35 minutes or less and budgets under $50,000. It looks like the right one for my production.
This contract has less restrictions than even the SAG ULB Agreement.
We were nonunion. For the production that will folllow this, I believe I have to become a SAG Signatory for a SAG ULB Agreement.
We will use a SAG ULB Agreement to bring in studio actors and a stunt coordinator already willing to work with me. Three of my actors were AFTRA fom last year. Now, they are in the process of becoming AFTRA-SAG from the merger.
