UPDATE: If you haven’t been following things on Deadline Hollywood Daily or United Hollywood, things are looking good for the writers to return to work by Wednesday (if they want to) and for the new deal to be accepted within the next 10 days.
So well put: The DGA has accomplished in six days what the WGA hasn’t in six months. Hollywood Reporter‘s got the story.
Over at UnitedHollywood.com, this comment was found…
“Legal columnist Nancy Prager makes an interesting observation: ‘When you watch content for free via BitTorrent, and the companies don’t get paid, it’s piracy. When you watch content for free via the companies, and the writer doesn’t get paid, it’s promotional.'”
Yay! The speechless videos are now available on YouTube! Indeed they have been for a whole week and I didn’t notice.
They also have their own webpage now, at speechlesswithoutwriters.com, instead of being hosted on Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood Daily. Their videos have the same stutter problem on their new webpage as they did on DHD. But the low-res versions are available on YouTube.
