That used to be the case. One national commercial with residuals could fill up the Coogan. Now, with more commercials filming as non union or as buy outs, especially cable or internet ads, it’s very unlikely. So, when one of our members asked about a flyer they received for an event preparing actors to book commercials that could pay for college, our alarm bells sounded. This sounds like a scam or a scammy way to sell what is probably a workshop-type class. If you are approached, consider it is more likely a come-on to sell classes than a legitimate way to book high paying jobs.
