• 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!

  • ALL Actors! We need your voices to be heard.

    We need the world to see and hear that our industry supports transformation. That our industry supports FAIR compensation that INCLUDES actor royalties.

    We need you to record a video message and put it on your online presence! Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. We need all our voices out there under one banner so that when SAGA delivers this message to Parliament, it is a message from all of us.

Now in its 10th year, the South African Guild of Actors (SAGA) is a powerful, unified voice for actors in the film, television, stage, commercial and corporate sectors in South Africa.

As actors, we all have our stories of injustice, dishonesty, discrimination and unreasonable working conditions. The only way to create a fair working environment in our industry is to stand together and act with a common purpose. By joining SAGA, you become part of a powerful, unified voice that aims to right current wrongs and influence future legislation to create fair and equitable working conditions. We are apolitical, non-racial and democratic and represents your interests. SAGA gives you a legal voice – join and use your voice!

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.
