It’s now been one month since the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) joined striking film and TV writers in the demand for fairer pay.
It is the first time that screen actors as well as writers have simultaneously withheld labour in 60 years, and has resulted in an effective shutdown of Hollywood.
Under the terms of the strike action, SAG-AFTRA has been authorising some “truly independent” productions with exemptions, allowing them to continue production.
The decision has proved controversial with many people suggesting that the exemptions undermine the rest of the workers on strike.
The union has approved more than 200 independent projects to continue filming during the strike, featuring actors including Anne Hathaway, Dakota Fanning, Jason Bateman and Matthew McConaughey.
On Monday (14 August), SAG-AFTRA announced that it would no longer grant interim agreements to independent projects that were written under a Writers Guild of America (WGA) contract.
“We have been advised by the WGA that this modification will assist them in executing their strike strategy, and we believe it does not undermine the utility and effectiveness of ours,” the guild announced Monday. “It is a win-win change.”
Below is a list of all the film and television projects, including Michael Mann’s Ferrari starring Adam Driver, which have been granted interim agreements.
