Fi-Core References And Resources

By Jeff Hatch

These websites and blogs, as well as the comment threads in some of them, provided a lot of useful information, insight and anecdotal evidence for this article and are worth reading for your own edification. Other information for this article came from my own experience as both a member in good standing and Fi-Core member of SAG and AFTRA and post-merger SAG-AFTRA. Thanks also to my agent, Gerry Donato of Abraxas Talent, who provided a wealth of information and to Union, non-Union and Fi-Core friends who shared their wisdom.
