When Should I Join SAG-AFTRA Union?

When Should I Join SAG-AFTRA Union?

Bruno Oliver If your services are in high demand than you’ll be required to join the union soon enough. If not, then joining the union prematurely only opens doors into rooms where you’ll be competing against actors who may have way more experience and connections. And you’ll be shutting the doors that MAY be your best avenue to building your resume and connections. The big breaks you get - the really career changing roles - aren’t going to manifest because you joined the union but more likely a combination of timing and good marketing and being in the right place with the right people. Remember that the other people working in many positions on whatever non union project you might be doing might also be working their way up the ladder and struggling with the union question as well. Rise together and support each other and you’ll all be making better art - and hopefully money - down the road.
