Thank you to my student, Zach Luna, for passing on this information:
I remember there were some discussions last year about how to get on the AFI casting file for their projects, in which first year fellows are required to use LA conservatory members for their film projects. I got this in my actorly emails, so thought I'd share it just in case (if you have students/friends that want to join).
The registration link is below; the conservatory is open enrollment to youths 17 and under and to to any paid up SAG-AFTRA members age 18 or older. The deadline for registration is ***TOMORROW, JANUARY 16, 2014. ***
The registration fee is $25 for youths, $35 for adult SAG-AFTRA members. AFI casting begins in late August, and two headshots+stapled resume are needed to be sent out before then.
Oh, and SAG-AFTRA members have to click the 'Click here to enroll' button after the first paragraph and ID number in order to be able to fill in the rest of the form. Couldn't figure that out at first.
