Anyone who's seen Team America remembers that Alec Baldwin is the president of the Film Actors Guild (F.A.G.), a more aggressive guild than the SAG. He's now penned a post for HuffPo titled It's the Studio's Fault.
He describes the technological changes facing the film and TV industry:
Cable TV and then satellite, VHS and then DVD and then DVR, and now MP3.
(Emphasis added by Writers Strike.)
When was the last time you choose to watch a movie or TV show using MP3 (a file format developed over a decade ago that doesn't support video, which incidentally predated the DVR)?
The Film Actors Guild needs to have an election.
