Something very wonderful came in the mail a few weeks ago. It was Aja’s official offer letter from SAG (Screen Actors Guild) to join the union. The 2 years of hard working and 30 projects later has finally paid off. Here is a brief bio of who SAG is and what it means to be a member of it. This snippet is from Wikipedia
The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) was an American labor union which represented over 100,000 film and television principal andbackground performers worldwide. On March 30, 2012, the union leadership announced that the SAG membership voted to merge with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA) to create SAG-AFTRA.
According to SAG’s Mission Statement, the Guild sought to: negotiate and enforce collective bargaining agreements that establish equitable levels of compensation, benefits, and working conditions for its performers; collect compensation for exploitation of recorded performances by its members, and provide protection against unauthorized use of those performances; and preserve and expand work opportunities for its members.
This is a very critical milestone Aja’s career and would like to thank SAG-AFTRA for the opportunity to join their prestigious organization.
