Watch how Hollywood destroyed a visual FX industry in LIFE AFTER PI

1 min read


CGI may be unnecessary in some movies, but when certain films do require that extra level of visual pizzazz, there’s plenty of talent out there in Hollywood. And then all that hard work gets buggered in the end. Just ask the guys behind Life of Pi, Rhythm and Hues, who won an Oscar for their work. After they were forced to close doors when they filed for bankruptcy.

This is their, and the special effects industry, story.

LIFE AFTER PI is a short documentary about Rhythm & Hues Studios, the L.A. based Visual Effects company that won an Academy Award for its groundbreaking work on “Life of Pi” — just two weeks after declaring bankruptcy. The film explores rapidly changing forces impacting the global VFX community and the Film Industry as a whole.
