Here’s what the AMPTP had to say about the DGA’s announcement:
We look forward to talking with the Directors Guild of America in an atmosphere of professionalism and respect. But no one should be under any illusions:
This will still be an extremely difficult process. All of us — producers, directors, writers and everyone working in the entertainment business – need to get this right, because in the rapidly evolving new media marketplace, there is little margin for error. We must work in partnership to create a modern economic system that fairly shares the benefits of progress while providing opportunity for the kind of innovation and flexibility we all need to succeed.
