'Rhythm & Hues: Life After Pi' Documentary Trailer Released (Video)
One year after Rhythm & Hues filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy shortly before its work on Life of Pi won the Oscar for VFX, a new documentary will examine the incident and the impact it had on mobilizing the VFX industry to try to fix its troubled business model.
The trailer for Rhythm & Hues Life: After Pi has been released.
The full 30-minute documentary will go online on Feb. 25. It is also the first chapter in an upcoming feature length documentary titled Hollywood Ending - Why the Movie Capital of the World is Forcing Filmmakers to Leave.
Life After Pi is directed by Scott Leberecht, an art director at R&H. Producing is Christina Lee Storm, a R&H alum who currently serves as executive director of Act One.
A portion of the trailer shows the 2013 rally that the VFX community held on Hollywood Blvd. during Oscar Sunday. The community is planning to hold a demonstration again this year.
