Another rant from the headlines ... if I didn't make a joke about it it would really depress me intensely.
So to all of you who might want to be visual effects artists in the future - don't. I mean it. Unless you can OWN the project you are working on you are on a nice quick ride into oblivion. No one on the globe is safe from the march of this medium into death. The speed of degrading the best artists in the world into absolute poverty is marching onward. The only way to stop it is to wrest the means of production - YOU - away from the people who only want to exploit you until there is nothing left of you or your art.
Rant off. I used to hate Mondays.
