Jessica Bendinger on the Writer's Strike

Posted on January 16, 2008

Jessica Bendinger, the writer of Bring it On and Stick It, has a video on the aworkingwriter website (no longer available). The website includes a collection of short testimonials by members of the Writers Guild of America, currently on strike against the studios and networks.

In the video below Jessica says she has no idea how many times Stick It has been downloaded on iTunes even though it was the number one movie on iTunes for seven straight weeks. Jessica also says writing is a hard career and a lonely career. She said she would probably be selling her house right now if it wasn't for residuals. Internet residuals is one of the main reasons WGA writers are on strike.

Update: The writer's strike video is no longer available but here is a video with Jessica being interviewed about the film Stick It. Take a look:
