Independent New Media Productions
Digital Media Law
JUNE 16, 2009
There are casting notices out there for SAG new media productions under the “SAG New Media Contract.” First, this is not the new media sideletter recently negotiated with the AMPTP (major studios) as part of the theatrical contract. Rather, it’s a new media contract (the SAG New Media Agreement) that’s been available to independent producers for a number of years—that is, producers who are not signatories to the theatrical and/or agreements.
