Looked on SAGs website for contracts for music video, but found none. Anyone know if they have one or if they have it under another contract?

what do you mean Not Union? By virtue of it being a SAG show, it was union. Do you mean non union in terms of crew? Being a signatory is no big deal. I have made three shorts all with budgets under 20k and all were SAG and I was a and still am a signatory. Lots of up and coming filmmakers get really scared or weirded out by a SAG contract. Talk to your local office, they are willing to work with filmmakers in order to get their members on screen. One caveat I will admit may exist is that in LA, they may not be as flexible as a smaller market town. Perhaps because they have much more work there and simply demand that you play by the book. I am biased in all this being a SAG and AFTRA member, but have also been the producer wanting to hire such people. Give your local a call.

Hi Chris,

Did you do those under the SAG short film agreement? I've made out okay with that.

Are you going to the Filmmakers Shindig this weekend in Quincy?
