Ask a Supermodel: How To Join SAG

I am an actor in aftra, but want to join sag.  I need an agent and want to move to LA. Lived in Studio City, but need Help?

Hey Alan,  
There's a few ways to get into SAG.  
1. get cast in a SAG film and have the producers Taft Hartley you in
2. log enough hours working as a background actor in SAG work
3. make a minimum of money doing SAG work
All routes to SAG have their pluses and minuses.  The best route to take is the one that's available to you.  
Here's a link that give you the routes specifically laid out. http://www.sag.org/content/steps-join Studio City is a fine place to be when looking for acting work. You're currently central to most studios and casting departments.  If you don't have to move, I'd stay right where you are. Especially if you're near the 101.  
Best of luck and keep working!
