The big news this weekend is the news that Dreamworks Animation is rumoured to be bought by the Japanese company SoftBank.
There was some followup to the Blur unpaid internship posting I wrote about on Friday.
I was contacted by Blur that the Intern posting was for someone's personal project that works on Blur doing their own project & needing help— Scott Squires (@scott_squires) September 28, 2014
Cracked had an article about how VFX is getting worse. A lot of bullshit, but some good points mixed in there. The author mentions something absurd like Scorsese was too lazy to scout locations so they would photoshop the proper background later. Perhaps the real issue is that budgets are shrinking dramatically for non-tentpole films, which leads to more reliance on VFX to tell stories.
