New Projects Casting - WGA Negotiations Begin - COVID Testing Stipend - AI Simulation Payment for Actors

By Abigail Hardin, March 21, 2023

Happy Tuesday, UTD!

I hope your week is off to a great start! We have been working on some changes to the Up-To-Date Actor over the past few months, including a design upgrade. Over the next few weeks, we will be updating sections of the site in batches. Please be patient with us as we work to get the hundreds of pages that make up the site switched to the new design. Our goal is to make this as seamless as possible. You will continue to have access to your account the entire time. If you experience any errors or technical glitches, please don't hesitate to reach out via email,

Annie and I are back at Actors Connection this month with a free workshop on COVER LETTERS! In this seminar, we will discuss in-depth the five essential components of a door opener cover letter and how to professionally follow up with industry contacts (including how often to send and what to say). Register today!

Now, onto the news!

Create a great week! ✌️
