Ask A Striking Writer

Kutner: The best one for just pure information, although it's a bit inside so it may be hardcore for some people, is Deadline Hollywood Daily. United Hollywood is the official, central website of the Writers Guild in this campaign, and that's where both most of the current information and also what you can do is going to be listed, and it's being kept pretty current. And beyond that, there's a site called Fans4Writers.com, which is a completely grassroots site and campaign that has sprung up over the past few days by fans of the TV shows -- it came out of the Joss Whedon group, who are the really dedicated fans who brought pizzas to the picketers last week and stuff. So anyway, they've started this website, and they're allying with all the other sort of fan groups and stuff like that, and gearing up for what the actions that are gonna happen are. I don't know when you're planning to post this, but this week the Guilds are planning an action, sort of nuisance campaign, to pressure the studios and their corporate owners to make a deal, and the fans are gonna be instrumental in that, so I would check in on United Hollywood for information, and Fans4Writers -- both of them will have things that you can do, and I think they're being updated pretty frequently.

Sars: And can we see you on YouTube?

Kutner: I have a video up that's circulating around called "Fade To Black", and there's a great one right now that's terrific called "Voices Of Uncertainty", but I think those are both linked to on United Hollywood, and both of them make the case, and then some other great videos that other people have made too, that are really short and to the point. Tim Kazurinsky, the former comedian from Saturday Night Live -- like, is he still a comedian? -- also has a very funny video where he explains the whole situation very completely, so there's really kind of an explosion of those. I think you're going to see more of those in the next few days. But, you know, that way you'll get some entertainment from writers, at least. And maybe learn what you can do to bring back the shows that you love.
