Representatives Locations & Travel
CASR Travel: If the Film Unit Office determines an out-of-town CASR is required, you will be provided their contact details once one has been assigned. Non-Union and SAG international productions must have a signed contract in place before a CASR can be scheduled. Out-of-town CASR assignments are typically scheduled a week prior to filming. We schedule the most appropriate, closest CASR available. Productions cannot place holds on CASRs.
Coordinating Travel: Most productions book travel for the CASR directly. Travel expenses associated with on-set supervision are free of charge for Domestic SAG productions. Domestic SAG productions will be reimbursed for any incurred travel expenses. Non-Union and SAG international productions pay travel expenses directly. Incidental travel expenses like per diem, ground transportation to/from the airport, mileage, etc., will be included in the final invoice. If it is not feasible for your production to make the travel arrangements, American Humane will book travel and include travel expenses for Non-Union and SAG international productions in the invoice.
American Humane is pleased to announce that effective July 1, 2022 our “No Animals Were Harmed®” program services, including travel costs, will be available at no-charge to SAG-AFTRA productions working in the U.S. and qualified SAG-AFTRA productions working internationally due to the generous support and commitment to animal protection of our funders, the SAG-AFTRA Producers Industry Advancement Fund (IACF).
COVID-19 Production Advisory
UPDATED April 24 , 2023
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will end the Federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency declaration on May 11, 2023. American Humane will follow the Guidance of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Declaration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, since human-to-animal transfer has been known to occur in some animal species, American Humane recommends the following for those working around animals.
• Those feeling ill/symptomatic or have had close contact to someone with COVID should not be on set. Those that have TESTED POSITIVE for COVID-19 should not be on set.
• High-risk animals are at higher risk of contracting COVID and include domestic and exotic cats, ferrets, Syrian hamsters, deer, and primates.
• Our Resource Center is open and available to answer your animal-related questions and advise you on how best to ensure animal safety and welfare. Contact us at 1-818-501-0123 or email us.
