Actors and WebSeries Producers: A Special Portland Event!

Hey everyone

As you all know, the web has become a fertile breeding ground for new content - local producers can get their visions out to a large, worldwide audience, and local actors have even more opportunities to work and be seen by those audiences. Heck, after Animus Cross, Lady Wasteland, and The Outbreak I've received attention from people all around the world, and those projects have helped take my career in entirely new directions!

Unfortunately, many union actors get cut out of the potentional to work on the web, because web series producers don't know the ins-and-outs of SAG New Media Contracts. SAG is trying to fix this by putting on a special presentation for actors AND producers to give them more information on these contracts. I hope you'll join me at the Living Room Theaters on Tuesday the 20th to find out more about SAG's new media contracts - they're not as complicated (or expensive) as you think, and they give actors, directors and producers many more opportunities to work together.

See you there!
