The Strike, Your Marriage and You: "The Healing"

Writer Bob Kushell, Director Russell Arch and Actress Christina Applegate look back at the making of a truly influential strike video.



Let's see...

The companies walked away (again) and are refusing to bargain (again), and the toll on the lives of working people is mounting...all of which doesn't have a lot to do with this video.

But when things are this bad, it doesn't hurt to laugh. Plus it sure would be nice if the sight of Christina Applegate abusing a writer was enough to bring the CEO's to their senses and back to the table.

Let the real healing begin.

YOu should get youtube's adsense and add it to these vids. The little money you make should go to your WGA fund. Encourage other WGA members who have youtube accounhts to do the same. pool your youtube adsense funds together for some PR stunt or something. Its not about how much it raises but the thought of your own productions making your own money. Now that's a statement.

Both videos are great. We all need a good laugh. As a crew member, I can only speak for myself, but I am in full support of the WGA.

Best strike video ever.

The take on David Russell/Lily Tomlin fighting is perfect. Especially when he comes flying back in through the door.

Keep it up!

Yet another reminder of why you guys are so valuable.

Maybe I'm just starving for new material, but that was absolutely hysterical!
