At last week’s Academy visual effects bakeoff, Acad governor Bill Taylor introduced the evening by noting that the seven films still in the Oscar race earned more than $3.3 billion in box office and employed 2,800 artists on six continents……….
The richest 1% got richer in the last decade. The middle class shrank and made less. In the shadow of looming wall street profits. The author of this article makes a slippery slope prediction of jobs leaving L.A. by both recognizing the ubiquty of other film unions, and suggesting that there is evidence that unionized workforce pushes industry to seek a cheaper work force elsewhere. I don’t agree with this false correlation.
3.3billion worth of CG films isn’t going to be done in India and China.
