Google Is In Upfronts
Google is selling ads like the networks always have, and actors' contracts are currently being renewed. The next few weeks could change actors' incomes for decades. From my LA acting blog:New media is now indistinguishable from old media (TV/Film). Google is now buying and selling TV ads in a big way, just like the biggest TV networks do: in Upfronts for extended periods of time. Residuals as of last week, Old fashioned residuals, applied to broadcast and cable TV (not internet/digital). Keep this in mind while considering your vote on the ballot for the new SAG Theatrical Contract mailed 2 days ago.
