Book recommendations? I come from non-Union/low budget line producing but I’m now working for a “real agency”. I’m looking to learn more about SAG processes, working with vendors, bidding process, etc. I know most of this knowledges will come from actually working on projects but I’m curious if there are any good resources out there.

If you have a BA team, ask them to explain SAG to you, including what an OCP/extra, upgrades, residuals, etc. Also ask if the payroll service they use (Extreme Reach, Teams, etc) has any training seminars. I know ER has some that might be helpful.

Is there another producer you can learn from? SAG knowledge comes with experience but shadowing a Business Affairs person or Sr level producer who does a lot of Union work can give you some insight.. feel free to DM me happy to answer any questions. Was a talent agent for 10yrs before producing..

I’d be happy to give you a rundown on music from the vendor side, if it helps? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Happy to help, about 15 years experience, also download guidelines & things like the rate books online at SAG for each agreement, (commercial, industrial). Also ask your BA (do you have one) or your HOP for any client playbooks. Verizon in particular is great and any pharma one or CPG type brand, will be helpful too. Lots of areas, definitions, etc.
