I encourage everyone to watch this heartbreaking documentary about the dissolution of the accomplished and lauded visual effects studio Rhythm & Hues (where some friends of mine worked), yet another high-profile casualty of the collapsing VFX industry due the turbulent, ill-structured quagmire that is the movie business. My old buddy Scott Leberecht did a wonderful job directing and editing this story. Definitely worth 30 minutes of your time, particularly if you make your living where art and commerce overlap.
These are some pictures I’m making so I can have a portfolio again. I’m doing one a day if I’m not working on something for someone else and they usually take around 8 hours. Sometimes if I’m lucky I’ll start off with a thumbnail sketch but most days I’m stuck with a blank canvas. There are a couple more at my website: www.tomrhodes.ca
Thanks for looking!
