Important Information Regarding Non-SAG Franchised Talent Agents

There are some talent agencies that are no longer franchised by Screen Actors Guild. This means that those agents have no legal obligation to abide by the requirements of Rule 16(g), the SAG Agency Franchise Agreement, and that SAG cannot enforce the Agency Franchise Agreement against those agents. The Guild’s leadership will immediately engage in an active campaign to persuade agents to re-sign the Agency Franchise Agreement.

Although members are permitted during this interim period to be represented by an ATA/NATR Talent Agent, members are advised not to sign individual representation agreements if the terms provide less protection than Rule 16(g), the SAG Agency Franchise Agreement. Examples of agreements which provide less protection are those with: a term longer than 3 years, a commission rate of greater than 10% and payment of commission on compensation including penalties, residuals, per diem, etc.

ATA agents have no legal obligation to abide by the requirements of Rule 16(g), the SAG Agency Franchise Agreement, and many of them have chosen not to do so. SAG cannot enforce its agency rules against these agencies. Although members are permitted during this interim period to be represented by these formerly franchised agents, members are advised not to sign any individual representation agreements presented to them (e.g., “general service agreements,” or “GSAs” or “Stare approved agency contracts”) with these entities without first consulting with their Guild, especially if the terms contained therein provide less protection than the SAG Agency Franchise Agreement.

Most GSAs contain provisions which offer SAG members drastically fewer protections than those in the Agency franchise, including, but not limited to, the ability for the agent to commission previously non-commissionable residuals as well as other sources of revenue, and significant alterations in the performer’s ability to terminate his/her agency contract. Members will also note that SAG will not be able to offer its arbitration/mediation services to settle commission or other disputes with these agents since they are no longer under SAG jurisdiction.


What to do if an Actor is handed a General Services Agreements (GSA) to sign:

● Attempt to negotiate terms and conditions that are similar to, or better than, those in the standard SAG Agency Agreement.

● Seek independent legal advice prior to signing any contract that is NOT a SAG Contract.

● Immediately notify SAG’s Agency Department (in LA: 323-549-6745; in New York, 212-827-1444) and provide the Guild with a copy of the GSA so that the union may assist you in reviewing it.

New Talent Agency in Charlottesville, VA seeking new local talent

A new talent agency is attempting to fill a void in Central Virginia. Conversations with film industry professionals have made it clear that there is a need for an agency to represent emerging talents as well as established performers in the Charlottesville area.

They are currently seeking youth (ages 5-10), tweens, young adult, and adult actors to fill their roster. This is currently a proposal to create the agency and they are going to be very selective, as one of the partners is a former agent from Los Angeles and has many contacts in the industry. The agency's main focus will be to market talent not only in and around Charlottesville, but outside the state of Virginia as well.

For the time being they are only accepting talent from Charlottesville and the surrounding areas.


Email the following:

In your email please introduce yourself along with your experience, immediate goals and training. If you are the parent of a minor child please indicate special skills/training the child has. Also, please indicate any trouble you have had with representation in the area. Perhaps you are a parent of a child and a company has asked you for money to get you work. Or you are an adult and had to wait months to get paid for a job you completed. The agency wants to hear all of the nightmares you have experienced in the area due to scammers, unethical business practices, and even lack of information. They want to make sure that they provide their clients with the best services, education and information.

Please submit one headshot and a resume (if your child does not have a resume, please indicate what skills, demeanor, special characteristics and qualities your child possesses).

You may include a link to your online resume link (i.e. Personal Website) or casting (i.e. NowCasting, Actorcast, etc.) resume link if you have one.

Do not submit video reels at this time.

SAG Members - What You Need to Know About Your Agency Contract Before Signing It

We urge all SAG members to attend. The event will not be taped.

In a major effort to increase the presence of Native Americans on television, NBC and the Oneida Indian Nation have launched a nationwide talent search to find actors, comedians, models, and writers with the potential to be cast in and write for programs in development and on the air.

In a major effort to increase the presence of Native Americans on television, NBC Entertainment and the Oneida Nation launched a web site to find Indian actors, comedians and writers with the potential to be cast in and write for programs in development and on the air. “The Four Directions Talent Search” is open to tribally affiliated Native Americans who are not currently under contract with a talent agent or studio.

This site will provide a much needed search tool to be used by casting directors, talent agents, producers, and directors. The site also includes news and current events that relate to the Native-American community and a place for job postings both in-front of and behind the camera. Oneida Nation with NBC Entertainment has created to promote & sustain on-camera diversity through community involvement and development, showcasing non-traditional casting choices, and creating programs to raise awareness within the entire entertainment community.

Will not only identify talent but also create an entrĂ©e for people who may not have had access to the industry in the past, and showcase their talents on a continuing basis. “Breaking into films, television, or live theater is difficult for anyone” said Ray Halbritter, Nation Representative and CEO of the Oneida Nation. “It is especially difficult for Native Americans who may have talent but never have had access to the opportunities. Through Four Directions Talent, NBC Entertainment and Oneida Nation will help open doors and cultivate this talent.” “This talent search is an exciting opportunity for NBC, and the rest of the Hollywood creative community, to discover new Native American performers and writers. NBC is proud to co-sponsor this site and remains committed to proactively develop new voices of all ethnicities,” said Marc Hirschfeld, Executive Vice-President, Casting, NBC Entertainment.

To get started, simply click here, fill out the questionnaire and you will receive an email once approval.

Los Angeles Talent Agency charged with false advertising in child talent search

A talent agency and its owner have been charged with falsely advertising to child actors and charging them $1,500 for an agent. The Los Angeles city attorney's office filed five counts each against Carl Carranza and Flashcast Companies Inc.

Five victims have complained to the city about Carranza advertising on Craigslist.org for a free talent search for children to work in modeling, catalogs and television commercials. Flashcast allegedly sent e-mails inviting the children and their parents to their offices where they were told that they could get a licensed agent for $1,495.

Prosecutors say Carranza was convicted on similar charges in 2002. He faces up to 2 1/2 years in prison and $12,500 in fines if convicted of making false or misleading statements.

I have been receiving some inquiries regarding what type of photos and resumes to send to a casting director or agent. Below is a sample of a professional actors resume and photo.

The photo should not be a school photo, glamor shot, or a snapshot taken by a non-professional photographer. The photo should be 8" X 10" in size, the resume should be cut to the exact same size and stapled back to back on the photo. When you flip the photo over, the resume should be viewable on the other side. Do NOT paper clip the resume, but staple it on all four corners. Your name and any union affiliations should be printed on the bottom of the photo, either on the border or on the corner of the photo itself. That way if by some chance the photo does become detached from the resume, the casting director can match them up again. The photo should be color and professionally taken.

Just remember that your photo is your calling card. It should represent the "real" you, the way you look in everyday life. If your hair is long in the photo, then your hair should be long when you walk in the casting office. If your skin is fair, then you should not come to the casting office with a dark tan. Always keep your photos up-to-date according to your look.

The photo can be taken either horizontal or vertical.

One last note about your photos:

If you can't afford to pay a professional photographer to take your photos right now, you can try something else. If there is a school nearby that has a photography department, go there and see if you can do "testing". Testing is when you exchange your time posing for a photography student in exchange for them taking some theatrical headshots and giving you some prints.
