For the second time in film history, two Hollywood unions have gone on strike. The Screen Actors Guild announced on Thursday that the strike would be effective from Thursday midnight and it led the cast of Oppenheimer leave the film’s London premiere.
Both the Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild are asking for better pay, improved working conditions and protection against artificial intelligence or AI taking their jobs. SAG has also asked for actors sending in self-made auditions to be compensated. On a website created for the strike, SAG says it wants “a modern contract that addresses modern issues.”
Many prominent names from Hollywood like Academy Award winning actor Jamie Lee Curtis and Jeremy Renner expressed their solidarity for the strike. Jamie Lee Curtis wrote an extensive note on Instagram. Sharing BTS pictures from her new project Haunted Mansion Jamie Lee Curtis wrote, “Since we will all stop utilizing social media to promote work that we are on strike for, this is my last offering from the wonderful new Disney movie.” Addressing the issue of maintaining a balance between skill and artificial intelligence, the actor wrote, “In order to put Madame Leota inside her crystal ball and trap her there for hundreds of years, they used a digital technique which was a first for me, acting with my head in a vise, but the results are magnificent. A great combination of acting AND technology.”
The veteran actress concluded her post with these words, “What I will say is that although I am computer generated, it is from my performance, my sense of comedic timing and you CANNOT replicate that with a machine. I stand strong with my union SAG-AFTRA.”
