I gained my SAG eligibility on a National VW spot in 2011. I never felt compelled to join because I always relied heavily on independent films to obtain my footage, and have some practice in front of the camera. Times have changed. There's new media contracts everywhere SAG Ultra-Low to Low Budget films popping up everywhere. I felt it was the right time to take the plunge. After years of bouncing back and forth I'm happy to have become part of such a wonderful organization.
