WGA Members Welcome!
According to the LA Times, "Dozens of striking film and TV writers are negotiating with venture capitalists to set up companies that would bypass the Hollywood studio system and reach consumers with video entertainment on the Web."
I say, Welcome to the Web!" If the WGA members are able to get funding and set up their own digital studios we all will benefit because the advertising market place will develop faster.
I think the writers have had a taste of the creative freedom the Internet has to offer and they don't want to go back.
Sure they are going to make things a little more competitive for all of us but I welcome the challenge to raise the bar.
Now you VC need to whip out your checkbooks and get things rolling before the Spring Advertising Upfront!
