Monday, April 6, 2009, 7 - 9pm
Doors open at 6:30pm

If you have wondered how to become a SAG member, negotiate with SAG to produce a film, or why you should even wonder about SAG at all, put this night on your calendar to get the answers!

Marcia Fishman, SAG Executive Director of Detroit and Philadelphia Branches (covering Michigan, Pennsylvania, Delaware and south Jersey) wants to meet you and build SAG in West Michigan!

She will be speaking on the following topics:

· Positive reasons for a relationship between film community of West Michigan and Screen Actors Guild

· The implications of west Michigan actors becoming SAG members

· What SAG contracts are available to west Michigan producers, i.e. low budget, new media, short, student (most of which include little to deferred payment options)?

· Concerns of Hollywood and New York productions in an area with little or no SAG membership, and how concerns can be handled.

Followed by general Q & A.

Location: Applied Technology Center, Rooms 118/120, Ferris Grand Rapids Campus, 151 Fountain NE, corner of Fountain and Ransom Streets, Downtown Grand Rapids
