If you watched tonight's Academy Awards you would have seen how disrespectful the Academy was towards Visual FX artists. The Oscar was given to "Life of Pi" which was the work of Rhythm & Hues. A major FX house who had won Oscars before with a long and successful track record of servicing the motion picture and commercial animation industries. They declared bankruptcy the other day and this has thrown a big spotlight on the problems within that sector of motion picture production.
EDIT: The entire experience is now available for all to see on Vimeo...
EDIT: It was taken off of Vimeo as well but it's resurfaced on YouTube once again. Also everything posted on Rhythm & Hues' Twitter by their community since last evening concerning this issue has been deleted and replaced with generic announcements about the Oscar win.
EDIT: Once again the video has been removed from YouTube. What does that tell you about Hollywood? Let's try again. No matter how hard they try and quell the truth it will come out...
