VFX/Animation Industry to protest the Oscars

Life of Pi (Fox) and Snow White and the Huntsman (Universal) together grossed almost a billion dollars worldwide. Rhythm & Hues Studios, the company that brought Richard Parker to life and created the bulk of the visual effects for these two Oscar nominated films, has just declared bankruptcy. Many of the artists who worked nights and weekends to create those effects are out of work and unpaid for weeks of work (including nights and weekends) on new tent-pole films for the same studios, Fox and Universal. It’s time for change!

(via Cartoon Brew)

    The disrespectful behavior exhibited by Samuel L. Jackson during the award’s introduction and the trivializing “Jaws” cut off just as Westenhofer addressed Rhythm and Hues’ bankruptcy deserve more coverage than Jennifer Lawrence hitting the stairs just before her speech.  These people are artists, not drones, creating visual masterpieces with hours of patience and perseverance.  If you are an artist, of any measure, this should concern you.  The company responsible for making you have feelings for a ship-wrecked predator, Rhythm and Hues, has declared chapter 11 bankruptcy.  These studios are underpaid and under-appreciated.  Spread the news, call out the Academy on its tactless dismissal of the hundreds of visual artists struggling to stay afloat.

Gigantic sea monsters, Godzilla, kaiju of all varieties — you just never know when you’re going to need a robot the size of a skyscraper to come bust up some gigantic beast from who knows where.
Luckily, we now have some blueprints to show us just how to make a kaiju-fightin’, population-protectin’ badass bot. These schematics, obtained by Wired, show everything that’s needed to build a Jaeger, like the giant robots used to defend Earth in Guillermo Del Toro’s upcoming movie Pacific Rim.
In these diagrams from the “Pan Pacific Defense Corps,” we see how the nuclear vortex turbine connects to the leg shaft, and how the leg shaft connects to the gyro-stabilizers, and how the gyro-stabilizer connects to the oceanic cooling vents, and so on. The schematics for the Gipsy Danger model Jaeger also show “conn-pods” and pilot rigs, a reactor core and something called a “plasmacaster,” which is capable of wounding and cauterizing kaiju anatomy and “sealing off toxic bleeds.”
Oh, OK.
