The Business of Film Explained III : How the writers; strike and AI affects filmmakers with Stephen Follows, Giles Alderson, Dom Lenoir and Phil Hawkins
How will will the writers strike and AI affect filmmakers?
On the 3rd episode of our new strand on the filmmakers podcast called The Business of Film Explained we go deep in facts, stats, percentages and figures of film-making with film data researcher Stephen Follows and directors, producers and screenwriters Giles Alderson, Dom Lenoir and Phil Hawkins!
Why is the WGA writers strike happening?
What are the studios offering?
Can UK writers and producers work in the UK and Hollywood right now?
Why you need to be careful not to step over the picket line.
We answer audience questions and discuss A.I and it's effect on screenwriting and film-making
Are A.I plagiarizing machines?, can they fill in BFI forms for us?
Should we embrace AI?
And we ask Chat GBT to ask us some film-making questions to quite remarkable results.
