I hear that Boyhood and Birdman were shipped to the full DGA membership, but what about American Sniper?
DGA members, pls pipe in here: Tell us what DVDs you got as part of your guild membership. IMPORTANT: Pls try to differentiate between your guild memberships. Most DGA members also belong to one more craft guilds, too, so you may have received a Sniper disk related to belonging to one of those. We’re trying to find out which DVDs got sent out to DGA. Warner Bros. will not tell me if they sent Sniper out.
I just got it confirmed that Birdman was also sent to the full DGA membership. Still don’t know about Sniper. One friend of mine is a member of AMPAS, DGA and WGA and has 2 DVD screeners of Sniper. The plain DVD is AMPAS, of course, but he can’t recall if DGA or WGA sent him the other one — dang! The hunt goes on!
What about Budapest, did they get a screener for that?
I just spoke to a DGA member who belongs ONLY to that guild and no other and she says that she received ALL 5 disks — Boyhood, Birdman, Sniper, Budapest and Imitation Game. So it’s impossible that she received the DVDs from a different guild mailing. Great. This is settled.
