How should us non unionized nickle and dimers trying to make a festival film handle the strike? Do we wait until the strike ends or does it matter? I'm not too keen on how the whole union process comes in to play with people just starting out.

If you aren't in the WGA, the strike has nothing to do with you.

It's only an issue if you write for a production company or studio who is a signatory to WGA, in which case you would be a "scab" worker.

Otherwise, you can write for a non-WGA indie production.
