The Screen Artists Co-op is an organization of film industry professionals in western North Carolina whose mission is to train and mentor actors, and sharpen their tools to make them more competitive. Actors of all ages and backgrounds have come to SAC to train, many who have had little to no professional television or film experience. With 70 percentage of SAC actors working on a range of projects, many have begun work on sets within months of beginning courses as SAC. Founder Jon Menick and SAC’s dedication to creating a community of resources and opportunities for actors of all experience levels have attracted beginners to lifelong professional actors and performers.
