Even if the Oscars mean nothing to you, I'm sure you can appreciate the hard work that VFX artists do in your favorite feature films today.
If you do appreciate that hard work, please read about the #vfxprotest . Tell people who don't follow "Hollywood news" about it. And remember how hard these folks work the next time you see a movie with great special effects in it.
A very good friend of mine does VFX - for major features - he is walking on eggshells these days. Hollywood needs to get it's business plan straight in this area - outsourcing to Asia just isn't working.
