China Production?

This seems a provocative headline:

Source: DreamWorks could have saved U.S. jobs if they made 'Kung Fu Panda 3' in U.S., not in China

And so on.

Rumor has it that there have been major cuts at DreamWorks Animation's India facility, in addition to Glendale and Redwood City.

Fox News can't get an answer about a Kung Fu Panda 3, but I'm willing to stake my dentures on a third installment getting produced. (I've seen and heard various things, you see.)

In the meantime, from all reports we've received, DWA is giving separation money of varying amounts to laid off employees, and is paying out its longer term employee contracts. (That's better than getting a cardboard box for your belongings and a quick escort off the campus.)

Apparently, there's no place to hide. Our diligent tech workers are about to get the same "gift" the studios gave to traditional hand drawn animation.Once again, studio staffers have worked themselves out of a job.
