Joining the Screen Actors Guild and getting your SAG Card is a milestone in your career as a professional actor.
As actors, we don’t have a whole lot of control of our own destinies. Which is why the best thing we can do is be ready. For anything.
Look at it this way: If a good friend called out of the blue and offered you an all expenses paid trip to Europe, only you had to get to the airport in two hours, that’d be great, right? Exciting… Spontaneous… As long as you have a passport.
If, not? WHAT a missed opportunity…
Having your SAG card is like that passport. If you aren’t a Screen Actors Guild member, or at least SAG eligible, you’re not 100% ready for that big call.
It certainly gives the producer one more reason to say “no” when considering you for a role, no matter how talented you may be.
Of course you are certainly welcome to get your SAG Card the hard way, like thousands of others, and wait as long as it takes for your “Lucky Break.”
OR you can be pro-active and take advantage of what some people are calling a “loophole” in one of the SAG contracts that has been quietly allowing actors to legitimately become SAG eligible and get their SAG card by their own choice and volition.
Look, producing your own SAG/AFTRA-sanctioned project can be very complicated. Lots of people may try to dissuade you. They’ll say if you don’t know what you’re doing you could somehow do yourself more harm than good. In fact, if you search the internet you’ll get a LOT of conflicting information on this joining SAG and getting your SAG Card. A lot of half-truths, a lot of hearsay, some scary warnings, and a lot of stuff that’s ridiculously wrong.
That’s where I come in. I’ve whittled the entire process down to a relatively few, easy to accomplish steps and created a step-by-step blueprint that simply works (and works simply).
Allow me, and I’ll guide you step by step, through what will now be the simplest way to get your SAG Card.
It’s a solid, foolproof system that will work for you, just like it has EVERYONE who has done it so far. (And it’ll also be a lot of fun!)
In fact, I’m so sure it’ll work for you and that you will become SAG/AFTRA eligible when you use my system, that I’m offering a DOUBLE YOUR MONEY BACK GUARANTEE (see below for details)
“Hours, days, years spent hoping, wishing and waiting for someone else to let you do it or deem you qualified: Countless.
The outflow of money spent on geez-I-hope-they-notice/discover-me workshops, etc.: Endless.
David’s proven and self-empowering course and the assurance it offers one’s self-esteem: Priceless.
I did it. It worked.”
I recorded a series of six short videos, and wrote a brief, to the point, yet thoroughly detailed guide book.A complete, step-by-step blueprint to getting your SAG card through New Media. In it you’ll find:
With the merger between SAG and AFTRA came some necessary changes to the SAG website. So I lowered the price again until I could investigate and make any necessary updates.
After I made the changes, I never got around to changing all the buttons back to $97.
So there it is. My sloth is your gain. You get the entire package, the eBook, the 7 part video series, the Quickstart guide, PLUS, an excellent ebook on auditioning that I’m sure you’ll like, AND a report that will give you details on getting your Initiation dues FINANCED (That’s right, you can break it down into 24 monthly payments if you know who to talk to) All for the dirt cheap price of… Drumroll please…
If you want to go about it the hard way, which is to say the way actors have been doing since time in memorium, I spell it out for you, step by excruciating step! Check out the sample module to the left.
I break open the so-called “loophole” in the New Media contract that makes it possible for you get into the Screen Actors Guild on your own timetable, and on YOUR terms. I show you every line in the contract that proves this is a completely legitimate way to join SAG, and not really a loophole at all (though it does require specific knowledge, that you won’t find just anywhere).
Then I reverse engineer the whole process and show you EXACTLY what you’ll need in order to take advantage of this “loophole” and get the job done in the SIMPLEST way possible. I take you through a specifically designed weekend video project that will not only showcase your best qualities and talents, but also qualify you for Screen Actors Guild membership, while you’re at it. I also tell you exactly what elements you MUST include to guarantee success. HINT: do this part right, and the membership department is REQUIRED by federal law to offer you membership in the Guild. Do it wrong, and you’re back to square one (Don’t worry, it’s a piece of cake).
Then we go step-by-step, line by line through all the SAG Signatory paperwork. I point out all the places you really have to pay attention, so that you don’t have your Signatory Application (and ultimately your membership) denied.
I steer you safely through all the on-set paperwork, showing you exactly how and when to fill out each form, and keep you from making simple mistakes that could cost you dearly.
All the details on correctly filing with the membership department. What to say, and what NOT to say.
