As was discussed in an earlier post, we've been informed that members at Dreamworks Animation are being urged to wear green shirts on Tuesday during President Obama's visit to the studio. The goal is to bring awareness of the plight of visual effects artists caused by the global prevalence and market distorting effects of entertainment tax subsidies.
Tonight, the video above by TAG member Dave Rand was made available. In this video, Dave explains why he supports this effort, and what it hopes to achieve.
While TAG takes no official position on this action, we respectfully acknowledge our members acting in solidarity to bring better working conditions to the visual effects industry; an industry to which they are linked by skill, experience and training.
Members working at Dreamworks Animation interested in obtaining a shirt before President Obama's visit on Tuesday, should contact President-Elect Loofbourrow at the studio on Monday.
