lor strike belonging actors called by the union Sag Aftra started on July 13 last year, was added to screenwriterswhich has been going on since May. This had a great impact on the film industry, the organization of red carpets and he resumed planned films. The implications for the next film were also seen. Joseph Kosinsky on Formula 1. The main characters will Brad Pitt AND Damson Idris, in a film that takes an in-depth look at every aspect of the world’s most popular motoring competition.

May 2, 2023: Writers Guild of America (WGA), the writers’ union, goes on strike. Too much uncertainty employment related artificial intelligence manufacturers. Wages are low, given also the rapidly rising cost of living and do not take into account some fundamental parameters: platforms, in fact, do not take into account the length of the post-production stage, the period during which the authors remain unknown, as well as the permanence of the series or specific content in the catalog. Growth of replicas and distribution abroad collapsed after enabling streaming in the audiovisual market. In fact, as soon as the platform launches content, it becomes available in all countries where the platform is present, effectively eliminating sale To foreign broadcasters. In addition, the platforms do not provide audience data, without which it is difficult to negotiate new guarantees. For their part, manufacturers defend themselves by saying that revenue prospects they are not reliable and that it is difficult to establish adequate compensation. However, the situation then changes. July 13, 2023 Sag-Aftra, a union that protects almost 160,000 actors, goes on strike. In fact, the extension period has expired (the previous contract, signed in 2020, ended on June 30, 2023), which was helpful in reaching an agreement between the parties involved.

The last three who attended the London premiere Oppenheimer, experienced the effects of the mobilization: the show was essentially moved forward an hour to prevent things from getting worse in those 60 minutes and to prevent the cast from flaunting the red carpet. At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be a common basis for comparison. The distance is too great. To give an idea of the exclusivity of the moment: the last writers’ strike dates from 2007. This is for actors before 1980. However, the last joint strike took place in 1960.
