IA and West Coast Locals Organize Duroo Commercial Shoots

IA President Short Appoints Safety Chairman

Yesterday in Los Angeles, after a visit from the IA and West Coast Studio Local Business Agents, the crew of a non-union 3 day Samsung commercial shooting on the Paramount lot withheld their services and shut down production while the IA negotiated with Duroo, the production company. 
Work resumed after the company agreed to sign the AICP Commercial Production Agreement. Duroo specializes in productions for Korean agency clients, and now all their shoots will be done under an IATSE agreement!
Congrats to this crew who called the job in on day one. When working on commercials, early reporting to your Local BA is of paramount importance!
