In today's Variety, David Cohen writes of an impending "tipping point" in the film making biz.
In the effort to try to organize visual effects, many have said that the addition of the union will be the harbinger of doom for vfx studios in Los Angeles. The argument continues that the addition of the costs of unions will be the straw that breaks the VFX Camel.
From what Mr. Cohen writes, it seems that camel's back is breaking just fine on its own. My heart reaches for the artists who have to toil without the benefit of a collectively bargained set of workplace standards or portable health benefits. It still seems to me those benefits would be well appreciated.
