November 20th 2010. Following a cross Canada vote by a small percentage of ACTRA members, the number of credits required by an ACTRA Apprentice to become a Full member has been reduced to 3, with effect from December 15th 2010. The change also means that there will no longer be a credit earned from working on an ACTRA accredited student movie.

ACTRA evidently sees more acting ability in an SOC role in a commercial compared to three days in front of a camera, with dialogue, on a student movie project. Go figure!

Auditions: Currently, Apprentice ACTRA members can obtain Zero credits from student movies. It used to be 2 until the council meeting in October 2005, but ACTRA decided in its infinite wisdom, that only one credit would be valid. In 2010 even that lone credit was taken away. That doesn't mean that you cannot work on as many student movies as you like, but you will get no credits towards full ACTRA membership. Regrettably the Apprentices were not allowed to vote on something that affects a mere 3,200 Apprentice members.

The roles are actor (6 lines or less) or Principal actor (more than 6 lines). Each college or university has a Student Movie Agreement with ACTRA which defines which projects are "ACTRA Accredited" and are movies in which Apprentice and Full members can participate.

When posting these auditions, I first try to ascertain whether the projects are "ACTRA Accredited" . For the most part, the information I receive is accurate, but you should be aware that if you act in a non-union movie and it comes to the attention of ACTRA, there could be serious consequences.

If you are asked by any college or university or student in a film programme to "help out" by acting in one of their movies, you should make your first question "Is this project ACTRA Accredited?". If it is not, or they don't know, they can find out for sure by asking the person who is in charge of the course.

To those of you who wonder why anyone would want to work on projects that don't pay, and, in fact, cost the actor money (travel, parking etc.) I can assure you that the experience of working in front of a camera is invaluable. Additionally you get material for your "Show Reel", and you can't get that just doing background work. Just make sure that when you sign up, you ask that you be provided with a finished copy of the movie as part of the deal! It is actually one of the conditions of the Student Movie Agreement, but on more than one occasion the students have had to be prodded to provide the DVD that is due to the actor.
