John Sayles Pickets in Support of Daytime Writers

Outside of the Time Warner Center in New York today, daytime serial actors & crew members (from All My Children, As the World Turns, Guiding Light and One Life to Live) and fans, as well as independent filmmaker John Sayles picketed in support of the Writers Guild Strike.

John Sayles, whose feature Honeydripper opens theatrically Dec. 28, shows his solidarity of Daytime Television Writers and other Writers Guild members who are striking for a fair share of what media conglomerates are making from the content the writers create. Back in the fall, I covered a conversation with Sayles and Maggie Renzi at IFP's Filmmaker Conference.

Here's a short video I took below from today's picket:
