IATSE The union behind entertainment

We are Design.

We are the IA.

I am proud to work alongside the most skilled artists and craftsmen within the entertainment business and the world. When I completed my education, I wanted to work as a professional artist and IATSE provided me with that opportunity. Knowing that my pension and benefits are covered through my work, provides peace of mind for me and my family. There is strength within our collective unions.

Each IA job I mix is a thrill. I'm able to sync skills with a team of technical magicians, creating something magical for an industry that ignites imagination.

We are the IA.

As a TV freelancer, employer-funded health insurance and retirement benefits are generally nonexistent. Thanks to the new contracts in our region, I now have a comprehensive, employer-funded IATSE health insurance plan as well as retirement benefits. Being a Local 414 member increases my all-around security in a normally insecure field.

We are Makeup.

We are the IA.

I've always had a passion for creativity and self-expression through the art of makeup. Being part of Local 706 has immensely expanded my knowledge, helped me to grow as an artist among some of the most talented individuals in the industry, and brought me the gift of an instant family. I feel blessed to be a part of this union.

I've worked for Local 121 for over 20 years and find you never know what you're going to be working on. But together as the professionals of the IATSE, we can accomplish anything.
