VFX/Animation Industry Protests at the Oscars

What better time to protest Hollywood’s woeful treatment of animation and visual effects artists than on the film industry’s biggest day—Oscar Sunday. Tomorrow afternoon, between 1pm and 4:30pm, there will be a demonstration at Hollywood Blvd and Vine Street demanding more equitable treatment of animation/VFX artists. The event organizers have also rented a plane that will circle the Oscars between 3:30 and 4:30pm carrying a banner urging a VFX union. Over two hundred people have already confirmed their attendance on the event’s Facebook page.

And I'd be out there with them if I lived near Hollywood for sure and I encourage anyone who gives a $hit about the VFX industry to do the same!

It's time for a major change in how these people are treated. They're way too awesome at what they do to deserve the sometimes foul treatment they get.
