9 July and the beginning of August, we will deliver written and oral submissions to support the Bills that protect the earning rights of actors. If we fail, we will never see meaningful industry transformation in our lifetime. Included will be our petition of OVER 2000 signatures. Make sure it includes YOURS!

SAGA has a duty to report to our members that regardless of the value you may place on taking the vaccine, some productions require actors to vaccinate as a pre-condition for being contracted. It is apparent that productions have adopted this policy giving consideration to the fact that producers are unable to insure their projects against any COVID-related losses. Producers therefore have an obligation to mitigate the risk of loss by adopting such measures as they reasonably see fit, which includes implementing a vaccine policy for actors.
Nudity, intimacy and simulated sex have an role to play in performance art, but performers and productions teams are vulnerable when engaged in hyper-exposed work.
The SA Guild of Actors has been working with several other industry bodies on standards and protocols that provide a framework for working with intimacy during pre-production, on-set and post-production. These policies provide a safety net for performers while allowing for a more efficient production.
