Watch: "Life After Pi" documentary

A new short documentary has been released called "Life After Pi" that follows the bankruptcy of VFX studio Rhythm & Hues 2 weeks before winning the Oscar for their work on Life of Pi. More specifically it looks at the crooked state of VFX studios trying to survive against unrealistic and self serving business models made by movie studios, thus ultimately possibly crippling the movie effects industry forever. 

The 30-minute film directed by Scott Leberecht, a employee of Rhythm & Hues, is actually a "trailer" or Chapter 1 of a much larger documentary entitled "Hollywood Ending" . The movie hits home to those not just in the movie industry but highly relateable industries such as video games, the music industry and contractor/freelance workers.
