An Open Letter to Ang Lee

February 25, 2013

A former student turned me on to this – an Open Letter to Ang Lee from a Visual Effects artist, taking issue with the expensive nature of visual effects. I don’t know enough about this to fully comment, but since when has that stopped me? It’s hard to argue that Ang Lee, who is only the momentary poster boy of this much larger problem is looking at VFX as a technology (at least in the quote in the article and in other quotes appearing elsewhere), and is ignoring the artists behind the work. If people want these brilliant effects in their films, they need to be willing the artists who create them. Lee’s sounding a lot more like a producer than an artist, here.
