I think I know the answer here, but on principle, I feel like the answer is wrong...

If you're a union actor, you can't do student films, correct? But let's say there's a film project that an NYU student or other program is working on (strictly for a class). I just find it silly that a union actor couldn't work on it if it would never be submitted for festivals and only be seen for the purposes of a grade. Plus it's then an opportunity to stay fresh, work on something new, etc.
