SAG to Producers: REJECTED!

What a busy day in Hollywood. The Academy Awards are tonight, but looks like there is a cloud of uncertainy after all the glitz disappears.

SAG rejected the final offer from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) Saturday night, Variety reports. So will there be a strike? Well, the board requires a voting member approval of 75% in order to strike. Saturday's vote fell short.

Will this affect Indies as well as Studios? The obvious answer is yes, but how exactly will the indies hurt is a more appropriate question. Only time will tell.

Happy Filmmaking.
