In today’s episode I attend a seminar at the Writers Guild called "STRIKE TV: ADVENTURES IN NEW MEDIA" and speak to Peter Hyoguchi and Jim Cooper, the dynamic duo that's driving Strike TV. Recorded Wednesday, 9 January 2008.
What is Strike TV?
Strike TV is an Internet fundraiser. It's an online "channel" featuring original video shows created by working professionals in the TV and Film Industry. These shows are self-funded and owned by their creators. Funds raised by ad revenue will go toward the Writers Guild Foundation Industry Support Fund, assisting non-WGA members, including IATSE and Teamsters affected by the strike. Strike TV videos will not be about the strike. This is a chance for writers to do what they do best - be original and tell stories.
Between now and January 15, we invite WGA members to think about what they'd like to shoot and submit a proposal to us. Strike TV is open to all active WGA members.
