Tips from one of our "affiliates" if you'd like to use SAG talent:
I have the kind of contract where it states I don't expect to make any money from this myself, it will run on the Internet, *not* pay-per-view. If you *are* expecting to get money for this, then you have to do some sort of deferment (I believe I have to revisit the entire contract if anybody ever offers money for this thing). If you are producing as an individual, rather than under a doing-business-as name, an LLC, a partnership or anything else, you call their New Media division, explain what you are doing. They'll want you to fill out paperwork with your name, company name, contact information, how many days you'll be shooting *and* a separate cast sheet, with name of actor, character they're playing, how many days you expect each one to work, etc. They'll also want a copy of your driver's license. If you're doing it under a DBA, LLC or anything other than as an individual, they'll also send you paperwork for that. You also have to send them a copy of the script.
You should probably *not* title your project "The Hunted: Whatever You're Calling It," but rather "Whatever You're Calling It." If you are the producer, it's not legally connected to "The Hunted."
Once they have that, they'll email you something to become SAG signatory and sheets for your cast to fill out when they actually work.
To get the ball rolling, call SAG's New Media division at 323-549-6457.
