VFX Artist and FXGuide co-founder and write Jeff Heusser interviews Art Directors Guild president Tom Walsh:
I wrote a post a few months ago about my surprise to hear the efford by the Art Directors Guild to represent matte painters and previz artists. The latest surprise is that the IATSE is allowing Tom Walsh to speak with Jeff Heusser but not letting Jim Goodman, the man in charge of organizing VFX for the IATSE, do an interview.
Is it free-for-all time? Does that mean The Animation Guild can freely try to organize other VFX artists?
Jeff Heusser also speaks about the effort to improve the VFX industry by Scott Ross, the VES, and the various labor organization groups. All have one thing in common: They all seem to be stuck in the mud.
