Angry Public Responds to Digital Domain’s John Textor
So, to every visual effects professional globally, demand what you have earned. Demand respect for your skills. Demand your experience be valued. Demand a fair wage for your skilled work. Demand to be treated like the professional you are.
And to you Mr. Textor, continue to devalue the work of visual effects professionals.
Continue to believe that you can get by on the cheap on your labor.
Continue to attack and destroy people's professions and livelihoods.
And I will make it my mission to destroy Digital Domain.
Remember Mr. Textor, the years of experience, skills, and tireless efforts of the visual effects professionals that you are trying to drive out of the business have brought your company its awards and accolades. Do you expect many will want to work with you when Digital Domain does not have any professional artists to create award winning work?
When Digital Domain closes and you move to another shop, it doesn’t matter. Whatever shop you go to Mr. Textor, we will not work with you.
Any shop you are associated with will close because of you.
You have pushed our backs up against the wall. We have nothing to lose in this battle, Mr. Textor. You've shown us your version of the future, and we professionals are not a part of it. You have a $10 million dollar investment in Digital Domain stock.
By the time we're done, it will be worthless.
Digital Domain will be remembered for their amazing work, and at one time being a studio artists wanted to work for, but every visual effects professional will remember John Textor as the man who tried to destroy the visual effects industry.
