Note to my fellow actors: If I were to add the cost of my SAG-AFTRA dues to my monthly fees paid to IMDb Pro, Casting Networks, and to the cost of keeping my website running, I would come up with a significant sum. Let’s add the cost of headshots as well…they are not cheap…and the cost of ongoing training to keep our instrument tuned. Those costs add up to an amount that makes the yearly cost of membership in Film Florida seem like pocket change. Yet, without the help of Film Florida, all the money spent on dues and other costs will mean little if we don’t have films being made in our state. It’s a no-brainer, my Florida Actor Friends. I joined two years ago. You should, too!

Even during a pandemic and when production is almost nonexistent, Film Florida is still working hard because they believe in our filmmakers, crew, and talent. Don’t stop believing! I do wish I could contribute more but every little bit helps. If you can, support #FilmFlorida.

“I became part of Film Florida when the organization hired me as communications consultant. My years with Film Florida have made me passionate about bringing more “industry” members like me into the fold. There’s so much I’ve gained from my involvement with the organization that I’d like to see Film Florida really target and reach out to and pull in more industry members.”

“I joined Film Florida because I believe in its mission and its members. I can tell you is what I see Film Florida doing right: I applaud the efforts being made to advocate for our filmmaking professionals, networking opportunities and bringing work to Florida. The Scholarships and educational opportunities offered by Film Florida are what always attract me to organizations in which I want to contribute. I am proud to be a member of Film Florida.”
