Wow. Thank you to everyone who attended and those all over who supported us in our effort to apply duties to subsidized visual effects to level the playing field. We will be heard.
So what’s next? I’ll be attending the VFX Progress meeting on Wednesday to get feedback. I’ll probably mention the same thing I’ll mention here. The law firm will begin to initiate the Department of Commerce about our intention to file a case. They will also begin to draft bylaws for the ADAPT organization so we can make things official. I’ll update the ADAPT site when there are big things happening.
Two years ago I met with our law firm to see if they could draft a solution to our problem. Even though they came up with a great plan I ultimately needed to see that so-called apathetic VFX professionals would support this. Today was that day and you all came out in full support. Given the recent news, I think it’s fair to say the path to victory has never been clearer before.
We have to dedicate ourselves but if we have the willpower and stamina, I believe we control our own destiny here. Today I saw a lot of hope. Let’s end this with victory!
