"Made. And it's a conflict of interest. You want a doctor who's only interested in your health, not in pharmaceutical company, profits, right? You want a lawyer whose negotiating only for you not also negotiating for the judge. Having agents that also package conflict of interest. And now three the biggest agencies are starting their own production companies, which are then producing content. So now, you have a writer that's like negotiating with the agency trying to get more money in agents posed to be the person to get you that more money. So the writers God bless the writers guild America there. I just got together in about it. We can go sit. All right, we're firing the agents and then a couple of days ago. The reason why this is still the top story. We have right now is they're suing them until civil court in California. So the writers guild of America are suing the TA association of talent agents for violation of partly act, and some other things that sort of like some other laws that outline why conflicts of interest shouldn't be happening in this situation, and they are suing and they're saying, Nope. We are going to collectively because collective action is how we actually get things when you don't have power groups that power when individuals power the WJ's grouping together and say, Nope, we would like to actually be able to make a living doing this job in the most second most expensive city in North America. Although in some ways as a New Yorker LA's, even more expensive, and they are. Stepping away from the previous contract and suing the agents for conflict of interest now. Negotiations are going to continue by all accounts. This is going to get worked out. Everybody's feeling like there might be some continuing Yugoslavian there might be something. But the WJ the vote was overwhelming among WGM embers that they want agents who are representing them. They want agents that are not in it for themselves that are there as representatives of the writers negotiating in their best interest because they won't that ten percent bite. You know, you're in trouble when they're willing to give up the ten percent with agencies like we're gonna forego your fee in order to get this packaging fee. Let's dangerous. You want them wanting your fee that taste of your fee incentivizes them to make your fee as big as it can be. I mean, that's the whole beauty of representatives. I I remember I got offered something once and. I talked to the person ripping me in that goes. And he was like, you know agents are wonderful. This was an agent in this specific case, it was an entertainment lawyer, but entertainment Lewis agents are great because they know they have land. They know it's fair. I soon as I got on the call with this entertainment. Here's like that offers way too low and within an hour the offer triple within an hour because he knew what the market was. And he knew what people should be paying that. What you want out of agents, and managers and lawyers? So in this case WJ's now set encouraging people have their lawyers do their contracts hilariously the ata said, if you're worried about conflict of interest, you should have your lawyer also looking over your contracts with point of agent is that you shouldn't also have to pay a lawyer to do it. And interestingly in terms of the new media landscape this podcast promoted as part of no film, school new media. They're doing it online script submission service. Because they're like all right. Well agents traditionally helps people read scripts and and and whatnot and find each other and develop relationships, so they're doing online sort of script submission thing. I don't know how feted it'll be interesting to see if it works. It's going to be very complicated. I'm sure I think we would all like agent back doing their jobs. I think role hopeful somewhere that able to work out. But it's also really interesting that the WJ is no we'll figure out new media ways to do it. If you won't do it for us. We'll figure out a new way to do it and will use our lawyers, and and will work it out. You won't representatives who are advocating for your best interest and right now with double dipping that's a double dipping to put right now. There's a conflict of interest agents agency are working both against you. And for you, and that's problematic. And so I'm really excited watching this whole story play out. And I think that you guys should all continue to pay attention to this. If you're WGLA and you've participated in firing your agent or the entire sort of like holding firm, and we're gonna work around you until we figure this out and participating lawsuit could for you. If you are writer, or even if you're not a writer read a little bit more in the newsletter will send out a link to the story because it's a really fascinating important story that. Really says a lot about how the landscape is changing. It's funny because I keep hearing stories about like, well, this all about digital media. This all about packaging packaging has been around at least the nineties if not the eighties digital media. We're ten years past the digital media strike like this isn't for me, a story of technology changing something this is literally a story of slow business creep like we had very strong unions, and we had very strong guilds, and they wouldn't let the shit fly and then slowly gets worn down. And then you fight it back up, and then it slowly gets worn down. Again, you have to fight it back up. And I don't think there's necessarily technology driven so much. This is negotiation driven WJ is banded together. And said, no, we want representatives working in our best interest. And I think that's totally awesome. A very worthwhile fight to half. All right. The next story. This week is game of thrones was too dark now usually this is sort of a weird one in that. There's like a tech angle to it. But we're going to treat it not as a tech angle. We're going to treat it as a. Filmmaker ankle because I know some of you who are like I don't care about Tekere. Skip the tech story every week total respect. This is really a filmmaker ankle. And what it's really about is about the pain in frustration of being filmmaker and having a very small amount of control over the last stage in the pipeline. So basically what happened game of thrones had Nipah said they'd been building for years. The battle of winter fell. It's like the undead som- be folks fighting against the humankind. If you're not watching game of thrones will censor if you watch game with runs is actually something we're really excited about beautiful episode well-directed. I mean, it's phenomenal. But it was really dark now the internet exploded with this. They're all sorts of great means about like not being able to see what's going on like practically every review mentioned it, except what's interesting about it is if you scroll down to the comments those reviews about half the comments like wasn't too dark for me. I saw everything fine. And I gotta be

That have one of my favorite guests mister Trayvon three. Thanks combat trip. And we're just gonna talk to the whole time. There's a lot of issues that here, you know, trading on. I we we respectfully disagree on things for that. We can laugh about. Younger brother. I've seen his career. I'm so proud of this guy to you. I've seen Trayvon when he was just breaking in. He's one of those guys that, you know, sky's the limit on what he wants to do very creative. Very funny multi- multiple EMMY winner, thanks free. Thanks, man. I talked about a lot of my life admire new. So I'm trying to follow that trajectory. Good luck. Oh, you want to be fired from this? You in your show to begin? You presidents under you.

West right is going make east. It's you know, it's technically to guilds that's one guitar to explain that. But right now, we're having kind of an existential fake with the agencies the town agencies over the nature of their representation because there have been some issues that have been affecting that definition of how we're being represented by them. And this agreement goes all the way back I think to the mid seventies. And it has to do with something called packaging and what they're doing a producing. And I wanted to talk to Trayvon about it because there's a major vote that just happened. And when I say, existential may change the nature of our relationship with agents forever. Or the role of agents in the industry. So I explained it a little bit Trayvon can you explain? So what is the major issue that we're having with the talent agencies and their collectively called the ata, right? That's fan for anyway talented soundly, and she's the I think the major issue the the guild has is that they believe there's an inherent conflict of interest when the Asians negotiate their fees directly with the studio instead of on behalf of the client. Right. So when you when you hacking, yes. And so if we believe if you are not incentivized to get your money based on how much money you get your clients if in changes the nature of how much money your clients earn over their lifetime. And we've seen large declines and writer salaries in salaries of different levels of writers since Packaging's really exploded in this like modern era of television. And so it's a it's starting to affect its interface directors that affects actors, and so we just want to say, hey, let's take a look at. This and possibly either get rid of it and put you guys back on our side since we great you. Well, let's let's I give the layman's definition of packaging so packaging from my point of view. I think is win. Okay. Where you're putting together TV show on television, the writer, usually does what is called creates the show. You know, they come up with an idea or they develop an idea, and they're called the creator of the show and many times the agency that they're with will ask will put together, maybe a director. This is how packaging used to work and maybe an actor. Let's say they team up that writer with the director in an actor who are all from the same agency and they call in a package and because they have presented this package. This is the way it used to work by the way because they have presented this package rather than get ten percent..

But he just looked so cool now, he just became cool. He's so listen to interview every photo, and it was really good because the G Q or the was video. I don't know where it goes. I listened to him Bill Simmons podcast was a really good interview. It was really DJ directors guild America's hot cast. And he was talking about how he's made the transition how when he first started out. Everybody was calling him. Like, oh, he's just the comedy silly boy, and he never wanted to be that and he's had to like slowly transit. And I think he's done that you don't really see him as just funny anymore. Yeah. Whole transition. He was like actor was always a path to director. He was always in. My mind was always a path to director Google. That's the difference. I've talked about how different groups of people will take the comedy mantle for a while. So it's like it was will Ferrell's group for a bit Nadan McKay. And then the set appetite grew and Seth Rogan and all of them. But this throw gin Jona hill James Franco group, they're different from everybody else. Because there they took this frigging town by storm on every level. They're writing their directing they're doing so much getting nominated for Oscar. Rip. And I'm not saying this as an absolute. But I would say will Ferrell's group is a bunch of comedians and actors, which is fine. And for the most part that's kind of the path that they stayed on. There was director Adam McKay that they stayed with. And maybe they would write their stuff here and there, but most of them Chris Parnell stuff like that stuck to the acting while Franco's group, just DEA everything. And they're they're the next level. They're about to take over. I think a new realm of comedy as apoptosis group. Expands more. Yeah. I still haven't seen disaster artists. Billy plan. Yeah. Have you seen the room though? Like have you seen the I know I've never watched the whole thing. And I did like a secession.

Like, you see the madness within you see all that in. So it's kind of fascinating to see all the madness within. So when you see it again, I I don't know.

"Marvel studios. Black Panther showed Hollywood changing, it was always much more than just another superhero film. We don't know if it will be nominated at the Academy Awards voting for Oscar nominations opens this week. That was Vincent Dowd. Well, nowadays, it's getting harder to distinguish between the two formats that will be covered by the Golden Globes, TV and film as the best acting, directing and screenwriting talent seems to make no distinction between the big screen and the smaller screen when it comes to taking on work. Well to discuss some of the favorites for tonight's Golden Globes. And why you might be hearing a lot more about them as award season continues right up to next month's Oscars ceremony. We're joined in our London studio by the British entertainment writer, Emma, Bullimore, Emma. Welcome. So let's discuss I how film and TV are beginning to overlap. What's driving that? Well, it's interesting look at the nominees list. Hugh Grant, Julia Roberts, Amy Adams. These are film stars there will nominated for TV categories. It's really starting to change. Netflix started this. I think it's made TV cool again and actually at a time where it's very expensive to go to the cinema and your option seemed to be big blockbusters which. Are in front of a green screen or little nashvillehomes that no one is actually going to see is very tempting for these great actors to think if I do something on TV, a it's cool again be there's some cachet, and I actually get to get into some really interesting material. So we're seeing a real shift and as a critic, how do you respond to this change? I think it's really exciting, and it's also really exciting for awards ceremonies because it tends to be the films are films that were released. I mean, some of them haven't even been released here yet and some of them were only released a week ago or something so people don't feel as engage whereas the things up for TV awards bodyguard killing eve, very scandal off things we've been talking about for ages. Let's get to some of the recommendations that you have in that our panel might have let's start with TV. Let's talk about a BBC film last year about a disgraced politician in the nineteen seventies, Jeremy Thorpe, the film is called a very English scandal or the TV program. Let's hear a bit more of the trailer for that before you tell us more about it. Liberal. Norman. Youngest man to lead the party. More than a century. Sure. Very dramatic. This is such an exciting coming together of British talents. You got Russell t Davis is such a fantastic writer and Hugh Grant who versus audience is a fall in love with his Iran Qatar actually getting to show that he can properly act, and this is fantastic performance from him with Ben Wishaw who was so celebrated as well. And I really hope it does. Well, tonight, he Hugh Grant is really doing some of the best stuff of his career. Isn't it? I've got I have to admit I loved him in Paddington to. He was fantastic. He was so willing to take care of himself. It's it's really great. Because he you know, he is a good actor, but he got causing this or four-page card type role. And now, it's really nice to see him blossom. Okay. Well, let's bring our guests in here. We have to bring Candace Allen in particular. You're still a member of the directors guild America. You get the tapes for all the nominated films. What's what's really impressed? You this season? Well, the the diversity not just the diversity in in the films like the big films like black Black Panther and so forth. But the. The the the smaller diversities in you know, the favorite. I mean who would have thought I mean, it's just unbelievable. I don't think it's going to win the Golden Globes because it's a bit too edgy widows, Cold War. I mean, there is just it's it's an interesting time. It's an interesting time when MS talking about in terms of the net the net flicks influence on what's going on in the industry. It's just blasted it open now. And there is there is still a place for going to spend all of that money to go and see certain things on the big screen. I mean, I think Rama for example. It's a net flix film. But to see the beauty of it, you need to be on a big screen, but other things like spider verse you really need to be immersed in it. And so that is a. I think the big screen is like books. There's a point where they think that it's not there. It's you're not going to need them anymore. But they come back because people want that particular experience in getting back to the Golden Globes in terms of film. I suspect that a stars born is going to to it's it's the fourth incarnation of this story people like love it in Hollywood, Bradley Cooper, did a wonderful job. I I was really impressed particularly with a backstage stuff really visceral. But it's fairly conservative. I'm upset that widows didn't get any love whatsoever from people because it's so edgy the favorite. I don't think is going to win. They green book, which again is a very conservative take on on interracial relations that gets a lot of love, you know, the the Golden Globes it's a big party and it's important for. The impetus. But in terms of really critical of evaluation of of what cinema is that's not what you go to the Golden Globes. It's less stuff. Isn't it? It's more of an industry party, and you get Emily blunt nominated for Mary Poppins bohemian rhapsody is there. It's it's allows you if you're not into really criticizing films, and almost pretentious about it. You can have a good time at the Golden Globes people that you recognize will be there. It's film and telly says very accessible in a way that some of the other all ceremonies aren't just just briefly. I wonder are you seeing a net. Flicks. Productions are they getting the same number of awards has the industry has the awards industry really pivoted to to to hand out Oscars and things at the to the same at the same rate to those kinds of productions. Yeah, it took a while. And it was really the crown that saw that that shift. They really wanted. They were very popular. But they wanted that cash. They wanted that gold standard of proper awards Baptist Globes. And now they're starting to get it. But what is interesting is that bodyguard will be there as a Netflix original, even though we know as as a BBC show they into all these car production. So they're taking credit for certain shows. We would not classes Netflix show. So interesting times. Okay, Paul assist and briefly with you. What would what would be your quick pick film? What what's piqued your interest? The one that I would really like to see just at least get noticed is is vice I think, it's such a brilliant idea because Cheney was such a key figure sort of half in the shadows in the Bush presidency. It would really be good to see. See him portrayed up there in this slightly comedy way. Okay. Fantastic. Well, thank you to all of my guests.

"So there's a lot. I mean, that's a big. I mean, forty days is a good schedule for this movie. But it was still a lot of things to do. So as much as I prepared, you know, like as much as as you ready to go and have things prepared as much as possible is always these one simple seeings surprise you. Like, I got this figured out. We worry about this. We'll just keep moving. And it's always this one little scene in it is one of those things with with film. No matter what no matter what how much you prepared is always the smaller thing. So I think it was mostly the schedule in some of the scenes within the schedule that probably surprised me most of. All right. I think we have time for one more question yester. Yeah. I feel like is is a really good place right now, I feel like you know, like one of the films. I love love Cooley high seventies right now at that time Michael shelters actually from my hometown directed that movie. Gordon parks in the seventies. There was a lot of there was specific filmmakers, but then there was a lot of after non African Americans direct in a lot of films of with African American starring in some of that was the case in the nineties as well. And there's always these pockets where you see these films, and then those films go away, but now is a little different. Now, think reason why I think television has a lot to do with personally in terms of there's more African American women more women, directing there's more African American men, directing there's more African American Latino and white non white show runners. So now, the vision is not actually white individuals controlling those visions, they are actually visionaries who are women. In African American so within that you have these authentic voices and different voices. And I think the audience really need that in some many of these shows are very successful Mideast films are so which will continue to make other projects and contained to make other films. So I think that's the difference between the seventies in some of the films have made in the nineties. So that's the difference in. I'm just glad to have this film at at the same time. Right. Well, thank you more time. Thank you made a beautiful beautiful movie. And and I think he made a movie that does so much for all of us as people and as directors it really challenged all of us.

"America oh yes which means that there are no residuals there's only up front and i was paid i'm gonna guess thirty five thousand dollars to write the script took me four years as animation does there is nothing else there was a bonus when when the movie was made that jeffrey cats were gave us checks howard ashman was there and mingkun was there and the directors gary wise and trousdale hinders the check for hundred thousand dollars each i was blown away i had never seen that in a check before so i was no zeros really howard ashman tore it up and threw it at him that was a pittance even him yeah time to be paid one hundred thousand dollars as a bonus so make sure everyone's clear your paid thirty five thousand dollars up front for this for years of work on beast andrew back end was zero hundred thousand dollars thousand dollar check gift gift yes that was that was what you've received from writing one of the biggest movies of all time yes now luckily i wrote the data conversion of beauty and the beast which is a whole different ballgame having done it it's a very different thing so we think control copyright in these stage play version of what you've done and that is probably a much more lucrative thing congestive more than thirty five thousand dollars off of little because the show has iran thirteen years broadway traveled around the world twice in just opened in china so that's very lucrative a little note here when we did the deal for the data conversion disney was really interesting way they had ownership of the movie right because they own the movie so i had to proportion out my royalty as for all the new stuff i wrote so my royalty which had been no full royalty it would been a wonderful thing but is only partial worldy i haven't seen situation with big fish so i wrote the stage play version of fish having in the screenplay a big fish and but columbia is considered the author of that and so they could've brought somebody else into these version of big fish and i would have had no participation in it whatsoever right yeah it's it's not a great situation but in your case in my case we got stay on this project and it's fantastic but i think what's interesting it's not only do not get residuals on the animated version of bc wrote but while your name is listed in the credits for the live action based unit the piece of that either because that is an mission is not covered by separated writes the original been live action by the you've gotten a piece of the live after remake as well probably because if there had been in arbitration because i did not work on the lead back there had been an arbitration i'm nine percents sure i would have gotten at least shared credit which i would have had a participation so it's unfair with a capital you would it is what it is so let's get into that why animation is not covered 'cause creggan i've talked about this before back in three hundred seventeen a listener wrote in with a question basically saying like well why is how could invasion not be covered by the writers guild america and the answer that the long answer is law but the short answer is that back in the days when animation was new the wj think it was necessary to cover that and so the animation guild began covering the writing of antedated features the animation guild is part of a larger deal i ozzy they represent animation writing at the major studios and you can't just go in and take it back because it's another union of us labor laws preventing us from trying to go in and get that so it is real frustration and i think also real cautionary tale for people writing in other john says that don't seem important things at the moment that will become very important things i looked to video game i look to people doing things that don't yet feel like they are on level of film and tv writing but could be one day yes yes it is.
