The AFA Podcast Interview: #PayAnimationWriters with Joey Clift (The Animation Guild)

Welcome back to The AFA Podcast for a very important episode of our interview specials. In this episode, AFA's Evan Vernon spoke with writer, actor and comedian Joey Clift from The Animation Guild to talk about their current efforts to negotiate a fairer deal for animation writers, who are currently paid considerably less than their live-action equivalents for doing the same job. 

They discuss the #PayAnimationWriters and the wider #NewDeal4Animation social media campaigns which are designed to spread awareness for animation professionals' mistreatment by an industry that they profited greatly from and particularly over the past two years, come to rely on.

If you would like to help, show your support on social media by sharing the hashtags and resharing posts from animation workers and campaigners. Huge thanks to Joey and TAG for talking to us!
