From BECTU’s website :
A mass meeting of VFX workers earlier this week (Wednesday 13 January) showed how deeply staff feel about staff welfare and called on the industry to correct its shortcomings.
Close to 400 people attended the huge meeting at Regent Hall, Oxford Street. That’s right, four hundred people. But whilst the evening was cold and wet, the mood of the meeting was anything but.
VFX workers are a remarkable bunch: characterful, patient and kind. Those at the meeting were probably representative of every continent, a factor also reflected in BECTU’s growing VFX branch which has to be the most international in the union. Why so? Because London is the place to develop a career in VFX with 50 per cent of the world’s blockbuster VFX capacity located in the capital.
