ADAPT (The Association of Digital Artists, Professionals, & Technicians) would like to invite those who share our concerns about the current film subsidy race to join us for a peaceful gathering to demonstrate support for more media awareness on the damaging effects of this issue to taxpayers, companies, and working families in the film industry.
We ask VFX artists, producers, camera crews, caterers, grips, cinematographers, musicians, anyone working in the film industry that feel strongly about this issue to join us.
Date: Sunday March 2, 2014
Time: 1:00pm – 3:00pm PST
Location: Hollywood & Vine
Wear green and bring drinking water.

Other supporting locations are welcomed to hold their own demonstration. Just let us know.
This is not a demonstration to protest work going elsewhere or keeping work in California. This is a demonstration asking the film studios to let us compete on a level playing field without the distortive effects of government subsidies.
We also want to generate awareness and support for funding our effort to challenge these subsidies in the US Court of International Trade.
We’ll be working on a site and some media to help generate awareness but your support is imperative. The larger the turn out, the more chances we get to bring attention to the media on this issue.
We suggest you bring water and wear a green shirt. We will meet at the same location of last year’s Life of Pi VFX demonstration and simply march. Invite your friends and bring a creative sign to help the cause.
