I keep meaning to mention this...If you've been to the movies recently, you've no doubt seen the ad from the MPAA about how movie piracy costs Hollywood folks jobs and money. Not actors and producers, but the good, honest, hard-working, decent tradespeople who work on the films. I'm sure the irony is lost on them that outsourcing movie jobs to Canada and Eastern Europe do the same thing. I'm sure that set designer for "The Big Chill" actually gets to travel out of the country if his production goes overseas, but I'd bet the people he actually works with are natives of the foreign countries. It'd be interesting to see the SGA and other film-related unions to try a similar campaign.
