My agent almost forced me to take this course - I really didn't want to spend the money. I am so thankful. I just didn't realize how much I didn't know and how much I needed to know it.
I love my agent, but she just started and she really doesn't know the SAG-AFTRA rules. After watching this course, I got $133 back from her for wardrobe allowance and penalty commissions that I had given her and didn't have to. The money I got back from her paid for the course several times over.
I really thought I knew the SAG rules, but I was amazed to find out I didn't know. Thank you for the thoroughness of the course!
