Stuntman Fans The Flames Of The SAG-AFTRA Strike
Actor Elena Sanchez posted the clip of Massa to Instagram with the caption “We are tired of being burned by the AMPTP,” tagging Massa in the post. The stunt coordinator also responded on his own account, thanking everyone who made it possible for him to pull this off.
Massa wrote, “Wanted to give a huge Thank You to Paul Short, Adam Hart, Alex Smith, Cory DeMeyers and Philip Dido for giving their free time and resources to be my Fire team at the Atlanta SAG-AFTRA Stunt Rally. We wanted to make a statement and I think we did! It was great to see such a great turnout from our local Stunt community, local leader ship, and actors who showed up to support us. It was a great day!”
As the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes continue, we’ll see more celebrities, writers, and performers make waves on the picket lines while they try and get the AMPTP to meet their demands — and compensate them in the way that they deserve.
