INFOLIST Red Carpet Support the Strike Soiree 2023 Highlights! A High-End Networking Event with Producers, Creators & Stars from Blockbuster Films & Top TV Shows! RED CARPET SUPPORT THE STRIKE SOIREE!

This year, our annual Pre-Emmys Soiree has be replaced by the RED CARPET SUPPORT THE STRIKE SOIREE to not only bring awareness regarding the strike and inform everyone regarding the issues facing not only members of SAG-AFTRA and WGA, but that the precedents set here will affect the entire creative industry ongoing as well.  Plus this event provided not only welcome relief and fun during a stressful time, but also great networking and other opportunities to keep your career moving forward and make headway both during the strike and thereafter.   The event was a huge success with attendees including major industry professionals, including a great mix of A-List producers, creators, and stars from blockbuster films, top TV Shows, Music, Video Games, Influencers, Fashion, Models, and more!  PLUS top working industry professionals, and up and comers – all under one roof to support an important cause!

SPECIAL GUESTS included SAG-AFTRA Executive Vice President BEN WHITEHAIR, MAYOR OF BURBANK KONSTANTINE ANTHONY, as well as screenwriter of the Oscar-nominated Meet the Parents, JIM HERZFELD, and KEN DAVITIAN (starring in Borat, Cobra Kai, Meet the Spartans), Talent Agent MICHAEL EISENSTADT (Amsel, Eisenstadt, Frazier & Hinojosa, Inc.

And it seems that only several days after this monumental event, the studios finally came around and negotiated with WGA, giving them much of their demands!  So, was it this event and all our photos, postings, and more that finally made the AMPTP realize that they needed to give in?  Sure, I’ll take some credit, lol! – But in all seriousness, this was a huge joint effort where everyone who walked a picket line, every hashtag and posting, and everyone who stood strong during the strike all made the contributions which added up, piece by piece to the incredible final result for the WGA – which will hopefully set a great precedent for SAG-AFTRA who is now starting negotiations.  Let’s all continue to stand in solidarity so we can help the actors achieve a similar outcome!
