54 SAG-AFTRA | Fall 2019 | Imagine This! S AG-AFTRA members will soon have a dedicated space in which to tape auditions, learn digital film and television production techniques, attend seminars with world-class technology thought leaders, and participate in classes aimed at building their knowledge and experience in a digital production environment. Expanded classroom and meeting space and an on-camera lab administered by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation for self-taping auditions are already completed and operational. Open to all members across the country, the on-camera lab is similar to the successful Foundation facility that was pilot-tested in New York, and which has produced more than 14,588 self-taping sessions for SAG-AFTRA members in just a few short years. The classrooms and on-camera lab will be followed shortly by additional state-of- the-art digital media facilities, including a full-size studio for SAG-AFTRA video production and member education, an intimate concert stage for performances by up-and-coming recording artist members with seating for VIP industry guests, a podcast recording suite and New National Member Imagination Center Unveiled SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris with national officers, board members and SAG-AFTRA Foundation Board members at a ceremonial ribbon-cutting Nov. 8.
