Has anyone out there ever dealt with the Screen Actors Guild as a producer? It's a pain in the ass.
We are trying to hire a noted actor for one of our projects and he is SAG, so therefore we must get the project SAG approved, so we had to delay the project a month so that we could fill out the paperwork and get SAG to say "whelp, I guess you can hire this guy." Grrrr, arg.
Now the only thing standing in the way is getting the project insured for workmans comp. because California won't let anyone work, even on an independent funded project without it. So in the end we are going to end up spending way more than we wanted to on a pilot that isn't guaranteeing any revenue... sssssssuck.
And of course our project is on the low end of the radar so I can only imagine what some of the bigger indi productions or even the studio productions have to go through... It's no wonder the industry is packing it in out here.
Sorry about the complaints, but I gotta vent somewhere.
In other news, the new Sketched is well under way and should be out in a few weeks. Also, be sure to check out the voice acting contest in the forums if you would like to win a chance at acting in an upcoming Sketched movie.
Till next time, i leave you with another old live action Sketch we did starring Tim Friel, founder and song writer of "The Bloodening."
