These entertainment folks figured it out **75 YEARS AGO** What are you waiting for ~Dave Rand
"Fellow VFX professionals, an amazing thing has happened recently. A tipping point has been reached and it would seem that our green spring is upon us... VFX professionals have just begun to awaken. The power we hold over this industry is incredible and should not be underestimated. Anyone who doubts this should note the deafening silence from the studios, the academy, the MPAA, and most every facility in the business. They are afraid. They are hoping we will go away and forget the insults and mistreatment.  But everyday they open Facebook and Twitter and see an army of digital green.
Show them that we are just getting started." ~undisclosed from A Call To Action
...Henchman said relying on government subsidies is not a legitimate business model. "It would have always been dependent on that subsidy, which shows how unsustainable it is," Henchman said. "It would have never become an independent self-sustainable industry." ("Oz" Public Employee Pension Systems Raided To Pay Film Studio Bills)

"The VFX community is partially to blame because it has not valued itself. We have no trade association, no union, no common voice. I can only hope the studios don't kill the goose that laid the golden egg. The industry has embraced the imagery of the digital domain and enjoyed its financial rewards, but it's not sure how to treat this foundling." ~Scott Ross on Why VFX Houses Lose Money on Big Movies
