Volunteer Quick

The eighth annual Santa Fe Film Festival is still looking for volunteers. This year’s fest is set to take place Wednesday, Nov. 28, through, Sunday, Dec. 2. Just one four-hour shift translates into two free movie tickets. Not a bad deal, if you ask me. People are needed immediately for festival box office, set up and orientation as well as for staffing. These positions could start as early as Nov. 9. If you’re interested, call Sarah at (505) 955-7003. Other opportunities include: venue management, hospitality, ushering and transportation. To help fill one of those positions, call Lexie at (505) 820-2267.

Strike Out!

WGA shoots down Hollywood

On Monday morning--after nearly a week of promising to do so--members from the Writers Guild of America walked out on their jobs and formed picket lines at major studios in New York and Los Angeles. For now, the 10,000 or so members of the WGA are not allowed to pitch to or negotiate with a struck company. They may not provide any writing services, and they may not sell or option literary material to a struck company. Writers, directors and producers can continue to do their jobs, but they can’t do it with any new words.

Fred Claus

Who wants a big, fun lump of coal in their stocking?

Tim Allen must have been sick or bored or tanning in Ibiza earlier this year, because we’ve got no Santa Clause 4 to look forward to this holiday season. (If “look forward to” is the correct phrase.) Instead, Vince Vaughn has stepped into the gap to deliver this season’s traditional tinsel-filled, live-action family comedy. So if you’re the kind of parent who loads the family into the minivan and trucks them off to the mall theater every Thanksgiving to watch the likes of Jingle All the Way, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Christmas With the Cranks, Surviving Christmas and Deck the Halls, then start herding them up now, because here comes another thoughtless stocking stuffer.

Struck Down

Four tips for surviving the WGA strike

You heard it right, the Writers Guild of America is on strike. Late-night talk shows (“The Late Show with David Letterman”), daily scripted series (“The Colbert Report”) and live/live-on-tape shows (“Saturday Night Live”) are off the air as of now. Daytime soap operas will dry up in a month’s time. Primetime dramas and sitcoms will run out of new episodes by the end of the year. What then? Oh my God, people, what then?!?
