During the Writers Guild of America and Theatrical Stage Employees’ Walkout, Watch Your Own Pictures: Says ScanMyPhotos.com
Free Photo Scanning for all WGA and IATSE Members
IRVINE, Calif., Nov 16, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) — “Hollywood and Broadway might be dark, but people can still be entertained,” advised photo industry entrepreneur, Mitch Goldstone.
“People should revisit their own, long overlooked shoeboxes of snapshots, have it digitally preserved and be entertained while they share and watch their own pictures during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and beyond,” said Goldstone, ScanMyPhotos.com president and CEO.
Support for the Writers and Stagehands
The entertainment industry strikes have impacted many, but none more than those walking the picket lines. The shutdown is causing widespread hardship. To help show support from the business community, ScanMyPhotos.com has been providing 250 free photo scans to all members of the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE). But, not to the corporate chieftains and industry tycoons who reap much of the revenues gained by those behind-the-scenes workers.
To take advantage of the 250 free photo scans, members of the WGA and IATSE are visiting ScanMyPhotos.com. The ordering information includes a link for accredited members to have 250 photographs digitally scanned and mailed back without charge.
