Documents Required for Registering an Overflow Account

During the account registration process, you will be asked to upload files containing the following documents required by IATSE Local 480. These can be a scanned image, a Word .docx file, a .pdf, or even a photo, if it is totally clear and legible. All registration submissions are reviewed before an account is granted. If your submission contains a document we can’t read, it will be denied and you’ll have to submit a new registration with the issue corrected.

Have digital images of these documents ready. We will request them during your account registration:

  1. New Mexico Driver’s License

  3. 2nd Letter of Recommendation (from anyone)
  4. Proof of experience in your craft (if necessary)
