Going Green in support of R&H and the artists who helped Life of Pi win Oscar gold
We're going green in support of VFX Solidarity international, expressing our support for all the vfx artists and animators who helped to make Life of Pi an Oscar-winning success - and got rewarded with a pink slip.
Yesterday there was a demonstration at Hollywood and Vine, to raise awareness of their plight. It's a reminder of the highly competitive nature of the visual effects business, and the precarious position of many of the digital artists who make films like Life of Pi possible.
grossed well over a half a billion dollars worldwide. Go green in support of your fellow artists!
(Editor's Note: You can see FLIP's review of Life of Pi here, and read more about the wonderful VFX studio that was Rhythm and Hues here. And, don't miss our September 2012 piece on the sad end of Digital Domain... )
