Stonehenge Casting: Validate your Union Status (if you’re union)

Posted on July 15, 2014 by admin

If you’ve been following the announcements, you know that:

  1. We’ve just upgraded Stonehenge Casting to version 0.3, and
  2. That means that, if you have an actor/performer profile on the site, you’ll want to make some updates.

We’re going page by page in your profile and feature by feature. You can get the full list in the original announcement.

If you went through the previous article, you saved updates to the Appearance page.

If not, you’ll want to click on the profile tab after you’ve logged in:

sc_v0.3_actor_myprofile

And then select “Union Status & Availability” from the right-hand navigation column

Either method, you should then see the Union Status & Availability  page, formerly known as “Roles and Availability.”

The “Roles” field has been effectively replaced by the new “Projects and Preferences” page. If you haven’t already updated your information there, please take some time and add your information to that page.

The big change here is added a mechanism to validate union membership for members of SAG-AFTRA and Actor’s Equity. With the upgrade to version 0.3, union membership for all profiles has been removed. Therefore, if you’re a member in good standing of either union, you will need to re-enter your membership for it to show up in searches on Stonehenge.

Navigate to this page, check the relevant boxes and enter your membership number, eight digits for SAG-AFTRA and six digits for Equity. Add a zero (“0”) to the beginning of your number if you’re a long-standing member (from our previous research, some of you are).

This feature was one of the most highly requested from employers, especially the team working on casting for House of Cards. It expedites the Station 12 clearance process for SAG-AFTRA performers greatly.

Once you’re satisfied by your updates, click “Save and Continue” and you should go to Special Information

We haven’t added or modified any fields on this page, so as long as you don’t have anything to add, you can go ahead and go continue to “Attachments and Links.”
