Screen Actors Guild reaches indie deal

April 18, 2008 at 12:18 pm Leave a comment

This week the Associated Press reported that the Screen Actors Guild has signed a contract with The Film Department, an independent film company that has about 9 films currently slated to shoot. This deal would allow SAG actors to continue to work on their projects, regardless of a strike.

SAG contracts with the major studios expire in June, and there have been rumors of an impending strike if a deal cannot be reached in negotiations. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the Screen Actors Guild is having some issues with the studios, similar to what happened last fall with the WGA strike.

Deals likes the one reached with The Film Department are only available to independent producers, but let’s hope that they and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers can reach a similar deal.
