A proud union member for nearly 30 years, it pains me to hear the misinformation from both union and non-union talent about how both camps operate.
One thing I keep hearing from people is that if you’re in the union, you can’t audition for non-union work.
I know what you’re thinking. You’re a union dude/dudette, and you’re thinking to yourself, “Not me. Not if I want to stay straight with SAG-AFTRA.”
Actually, you are being just a bit too hard on yourself.
Hope this helps!
