What gets me about all this is [In reply to] Can't Post

Sir Peter is a good employer. He is a man who loves/lives film and has done so much for the NZ film industry, so why are the unions going after him? Why are they not chasing the villains of the industry?

Over the years I’ve worked for some bad employers.
Seven months to pay six months of work is not uncommon.
Safety issues on set. After broken bones and a homemade pyrotechnics set a fire engine on fire we were dropped from filming a series for asking for assurances for our safety.
One production house was notorious for exploiting child actors… ringing local schools offering $10 per child and then working them 12 hours on set without providing food and calling it “work experience.”

In all of this I ask where were the unions?

Surely they should go after the bad guys not the ones trying to help the industry.

All artists are prepared to suffer for their work, but why are so few prepared to learn to draw? :BANKSY

Completely agree [In reply to] Can't Post

with your last paragraph. That's what is making TORn so special.

I do not suffer from LotR obsession - I enjoy every minute of it.
