Come, I will conceal nothing from you. If I was a scriptwriter – which is a highly technical specialty that I have neither mastered, nor am even checked out on – I would not have been sanguine about the studios’ most likely attitude towards using AI, either. There’s a suggestion that this dispute has been at least partially addressed, independently of the actors’ strike, which is likewise over things that I actually have some sympathy for.
I can also understand the attitude of a pox on all of their houses, sure. Still: I did grow up in a blue-collar union household. That’s the sort of thing that can grow deep roots in a fellow.
