New report says most Hollywood writers still white & male

Read about it at The Hollywood Reporter.

This bit of news doesn't affect DIY/real indie filmmakers but I thought I'd post the link in case this blog is read by minority and or female screenwriters who want Hollywood work.

I love how you're an original voice of the non-typical, born in Hollywood, white, "straight" filmmaker. We need more Sujewas!

I recently wrote about this sad state of affairs. We need more Sujewas, and DIY is how we're going to get it.

I do like some typically Hollywood stuff, but yeah, until H-wood hiring practices change (actually, even when it does change H-wood will mostly be interested in movies that follow certain formulas & can guarantee a lot of $s at the box office,i think) the indie field is where people who want to tell unique stories can get them told. And even in the indie world, DIY is the easiest path to getting a movie done & out.

I am however straight, sorry to disappoint on that front:)
