Currently SAG-AFTRA members can work on:

  • Short Project Agreement

  • Micro-Budget Project Agreement

  • Student Film Agreement

  • Podcast Agreement

  • Music Videos


Key Requirements:

  • Budget less than $50k

  • Runtime of less than 40 minutes

  • Live action, scripted

  • 30 days or less of principal photography

Key Requirements:

  • Budget less than $20k per film

  • Live action scripted or unscripted
