VFX, Layoffs, Oscars, & Uncertainty

Lots of developments this month.  DreamWorks is laying off up to 350 people, Rhythm & Hues is laying off most the company and going bankrupt, there was a vfx protest at the Oscars - oh, the Oscars, where the vfx supervisor on Life of Pi was cut off mid-speech while trying to mention the stress and turmoil currently in the industry.  We'll see where this goes - but it's been quite the ride for the last 4 weeks....

Oh, and everyone on social media is changing their profiles to green squares (as in "without visual effects your movie would look like this").
