STRIKE! And Russians in Space... with Cameras?

Lots of big and exciting news in the film industry this week, including the recent strike authorization vote by IATSE!

In this episode, we talk about...

  • IATSE, the union representing thousands of TV and film employees, has authorized a strike to gain equal pay for new media (such as streaming services), higher bottom rates for living wages, and adequate rest breaks.
  • How the resounding “yes” vote for the strike got negotiations to start moving again.
  • The support and solidarity that’s been seen in the film community about the strike—but how much are these supporters putting their money where their mouth is?
  • Thoughts on the roles of unions, pay scales for different positions in the industry, how this all affects producers, and more.
  • How Russia sent a film crew to space to shoot a movie at the International Space Station!
  • Exciting news regarding the iPhone 13’s camera’s LiDAR capabilities.
  • An Ask No Film School question regarding how we can help support the IATSE strike, if it happens.
