August’s GUEST SPEAKER : Kathy Byrne of SAG-AFTRA Chicago
From Student film projects to Short low-budget Indies and feature films, Kathy Byrne explores the process, dispels the myths, and shares the ins-and-outs of SAG-AFTRA film agreements for independent filmmakers and producers at every level and how easy it can be to get professional actors in your next independent film production.
— ABOUT KATHY BRYNE —
Kathy Byrne has been the Director of TV/Theatrical Department for SAG-AFTRA Chicago since May, 2010. In addition to running the TV/Theatrical Department, she also is the head of Agency Relations for the Chicago local, working with Franchised Agents in the Chicago market.
Kathy is a firm believer in outreach to both actors and filmmakers who are beginning their careers, or who have worked on several film projects without realizing how easy it is to work with SAG-AFTRA actors and contracts. Kathy covers low budget contracts for 13 states in the Midwest and travels to those locations with the same message.
