Re: WGA Offers a One Year Respite?

legally, this feels like a *much* bigger deal than it might first read. basically, if you believe the excerpts from the quoted emails and letters, the WGA is saying it has the receipts for collusion...

Re: WGA Offers a One Year Respite?

that's my read. also, it does give some incentive for the Paradigm mid-tier houses to get on board before development season starts in earnest, even if only for one more year

Re: WGA Rejects latest ATA Offer - Revenue Sharing Off the Table

that's been the threat, explicit and implicit, all along by WME and CAA to keep the mid-tier members in line: if you sign the CoC, you don't get our talent for your writers' projects. but they can't...

Re: Final Draft 8 corrupt file - don't panic?

one nice thing i like about Fade In is that you can link it directly to a dropbox folder for saving a backup copy to the cloud (I also Save As a copy to my Google Drive for triple redundancy)

Re: WGA questions

managers are not licensed fiduciaries under California law in the same way as agents are and can take a production fee (in lieu of commission) if the client agrees up front

Re: Endeavor IPO Lifts Veil on Exec Pay...

it feels like an F.U. move to me but at this point would Goodman & Co. put it to a vote among the rank-and-file just to show all the Deadline letter writers -- if not the ATA itself -- how much of a...

Re: Endeavor IPO Lifts Veil on Exec Pay...

don't know how much to read into an announcement like this (coming one day before WGA and ATA are supposed to be back at the table) but it feels maybe just slightly weird that Paradigm would bring on...

Re: Endeavor IPO Lifts Veil on Exec Pay...

the non-three initial agencies are being asked to take the bullet against the writers so CAA and WME can cash in on the IPOs that have been long planned.

and so far, they are! but they don't have...

Re: Anyone outside America been read by CAA?

if they signed a non-WGA writer just to sell a spec script that would then get the writer into the WGA, they would have to be fired the next day (as it currently stands)
