Maybe some of you have noticed your friends changing their profile pictures to a solid green colored square. There’s a reason behind this. There is a solidarity movement going on for VFX artists in the US.

As you know, box office success Life of Pi won the award for Best VFX at the Oscars last Sunday. What not many people know is that Rhythm & Hues, the VFX house that worked on Life of Pi has filed for bankruptcy in the beginning of February. How can the VFX house that worked on such a successful hollywood movie go bankrupt, one might ask. It’s common knowledge in the VFX industry that VFX houses never get a fair cut in terms of payment. VFX companies are still under appreciated and they have a hard time competing with VFX companies overseas who are willing to do the work for a fraction of the price. It’s such a shame that such talented artists have to deal with this sort of issue.
