How do I get my first job?
Well, first you got to get your SAG and/or AFTRA union card.
What is SAG? What is AFTRA?
SAG is short for the Screen Actors Guild, while AFTRA is an abbreviation for the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. These are the two major unions whose jurisdiction covers Film, music videos and TV. SAG/AFTRA Stunt Coordinators can only work on union films. Therefore they can only hire union (a.k.a. SAG & AFTRA) stunt people to work for them. SAG and AFTRA are two separate sister unions. Just because you are in one of them does not mean you can work in a project that is under the jurisdiction of the other. SAG is considered to be the bigger and most powerful of the two. Most stunt people eventually end up becoming members of both.
