#WishIWasThere campaign




Sisters, Brothers, Kin --

The Communications Department is currently collecting video content for the #WishIWasThere campaign. This campaign is to highlight members in 10 second clips where members explain that they'd rather be working behind-the-scenes in their skilled profession, but can't due to COVID-19 shutting down our industry.

If we collect enough of these videos, we can amplify our collective voices so that they echo throughout the chambers of congress, and ensure congress passes much-needed stimulus and aid.

In this campaign, it is vital that we highlight and represent all the different faces of our union. Therefore, we invite all our Sisters, Brothers and Kin to take part in this campaign.  We are asking all Local Officers to please forward and encourage Local members to email a 10 second video recording of themselves stating their name, Local, craft, and where they wish they could be working if not for the ongoing Pandemic to comms@iatse.net. Additionally, we are requesting all members to please include any images they may have of themselves working behind the scenes.

We look forward to hearing from you!

In solidarity,


IATSE Communications
