IATSE toon types: We like you, WGA!

Strikenov19_002 IATSE’s leadership might be perturbed at the WGA. Some rank and file members, however, are feeling a bit more kindly.
   Andrew Goldberg, the assistant to Seth MacFarlane who helped organize today’s assistants’ rally at Fox, said a group of IATSE animation writers  donated about $1,000 to help buy gift cards to Quizno’s.
  “A lot of them were a little angry and embarassed by what Tom Short said,” Goldberg said, referring to Short’s letter last week blasting the WGA leadership.
Quizno’s felt like the unofficial food sponsor of today’s Fox picket, which attracted several hundred Red Shirts. More than $2,000 was donated by scribes to buy boxed lunches from the sub shop. Left over boxes were to be donated to a local charity.
   Goldberg, a WGA member who’s scheduled to become a full-fledged “Family Guy” scribe in January (or as soon as the strike is over), said he organized today’s even because he was tired of hearing a certain talking point from the studios.
  “Studios have been saying, ‘Look at what the writers are making us do’,” he said. “I think most of us assistants don’t feel that way. I don’t want them to get away with that.”
