Update: It seams Gridwarp's twitter account has been taken down... 
Gridwarped's Twitter feed was somewhat of a live stream from a company meeting held at Digital Domain this evening, he spoke of DD's move to shift business to it's Vancouver pod, news that the Venice office will merge with Playa Vista, and that 8 people had been laid off today from the Venice facility.  When asked by VFXLaw if people were being asked to relocate at least?  Gridwarp mentioned that some people will be approached, and it was said to let your leads know if your interested in moving.  You can follow the feed here.
The outfit will be a collective and sets out to redress some of the negative working practices in the industry.

"We've been at the sharp end of how the vfx industry has developed over the years, and like many artists, have worked untold hours of overtime for no pay and little job security, " says Hunt. "Like so many in the industry, we've done this as we are incredibly passionate about what we deliver to the screen." ~Chris Hunt

"There’s a huge divergence with what’s happening in visual effects in the film world and what’s happening in the commercial world," Shipman said. "What drives a lot of the decisions in film is purely cost, whereas in the commercial world it’s not driven by those tax incentives." ~Jon Collins
