With sexual harassment scandals manifesting, will the Hollywood industry have new players being inducted as key people to look out for? Hollywood has a business culture that many don’t know about. There are usually Payroll Departments, Accounting Associates and so much more. Sexual harassment should not be tolerated as with any harassment. We also know that many crew people spend long hours together and there are more personal chats among each other. It’s best to keep things professional and let people work in peace. Some of these allegations in Hollywood may be true and some may be false or misleading. Either way, going forward; we should always respect the space of co-workers even on sets and at production studios. Racism has to stop too. There are people going through many tumultuous situations these days. So many want to be left alone. Is there a universal catcall going on? Are the #metoos real or not? Yes some may be real. Others may not be real. But let us stick to the facts and not jump to conclusions. We should respect both men and women in the workplace whether it’s in the Hollywood industry or whether it be working at a corporate office for Boeing. I have included links to stories for two sexual harassment scandals. Let us respect the space of our work colleagues. We are weary from seeing so many sexual allegations come out, but we stay up to date to know what to look for in regards to sex scandals. Below, there are stories about two popular Hollywood legends and their accusations. Please click each link below.
With so many networks and social media, we are seeing actor rates decrease. Tuning into hot spots for new productions, I’ve seen big name actors consistently working back to back Film and TV Jobs. Maybe their worth has decreased? Is it supply and demand? There are so many celebrities now. I believe that more people are tuning into less regarded social media stars and the ‘integrity’ behind stardom has dwindled. There are so many stars! Who can keep up? Also, so many new actors have started working for low pay. Just to be on television, many actors would do it for free. Is it fair? Reality programs have made many acting schools diminish. People are being themselves on TV in which many acting courses were not needed. What does this mean for actors? Now, productions are popping up across the United States. This means actors who are not famous are getting lead roles and of course the wages are less. Hollywood has changed since reality programs and social media productions have taken off. So I guess actors will have to keep their day jobs as waiters or sales professionals just to make ends meet. Everyone cannot be Mark Wahlberg. Now, big stars are working Hulu and Amazon projects which are good but don’t seem to be ‘sparkling’ as a production would on the big cinema screen. I guess actors may have to sweat a little bit, take off the make up and work a production assistant job or two. But there is good news. Some media companies buy indie productions. Actors could perhaps produce their own productions and try to pitch them to online networks. With online networks, actors have more choices. There are parts for online commercials and web ads. Companies are paying less for advertising since Facebook, You Tube and other online outlets have increased. And these social media sites are booming. And they charge less for advertising. This means, as a result, actor wages have gone down considerably since the 1990s and 2000s. Thank God there is still work. There are several background acting jobs popping up across the nation. And there are many speaking roles being cast for less known actors. Wages may have decreased overall, but there are more productions popping up since companies pay less in order to spin out online commercials. Let’s wait and see what the future holds. More gigs? Less pay? Or will the wages increase with new talent demanding more money? It will be interesting to see what’s next!
