Lately, I see a lot of green squares in place of people’s Facebook photos. This is meant in solidarity with Hollywood VFX house Rhythm & Hues, responsible for the look of such films as Snow White and the Huntsman and The Wolfman. The outfit has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection and fired its 250+ employees. To add insult to injury, the producers of the Academy Awards gave them the shark music then cut off Bill Westenhofer’s mic as he was accepting the Oscar for Best Visual Effects on The Life of Pi.
“The most important person in the motion picture process is the writer, and we must do everything in our power to prevent them from ever realizing it.”
–Irving Thalberg (kind of a big deal producer long, long ago)
