As part of the development process of MEGBALL$, we ran the script to several staff members of the actors union, SAG-AFTRA. Marc Baron, the film writer/director, has been serving on the SAG-AFTRA board for over 7 years, and asked a favor of staff – to be sure that the project would qualify for certain incentives that affect the contract the film would sign to. For example, if the casting meets the Affirmative Action Incentive, it raises the budget cap and keeps the project within the Modified Low Budget contract. The response was we’re right on target.
But what was even nicer…that three different staff member agree that the script was funny and that the film should be commercial – that it should sell! They read dozens of scripts per week, so their opinions are certainly appreciated
