Media For Lunch: Life After Pi

It has been over a year since Rhythm & Hues, the Oscar-winning visual effects studio behind Life of Pi, succumbed to millions in debt and filed for bankruptcy. Its collapse rocked the tight-knit world of visual effects, culminating in a demonstration at this year’s Academy Awards. To help make sense of the fallout, two Hues employees — Christina Lee Storm and Scott Leberecht – created Life After Pi, a YouTube documentary chronicling the company’s failure.
IMDB: Life After Pi is a documentary about Rhythm & Hues Studios, the L.A. based Visual Effects company that won an Academy Award for its groundbreaking work on Life of Pi – just two weeks after declaring bankruptcy. The film explores rapidly changing forces impacting the global VFX community, and the Film Industry as a whole. This is only the first chapter of an upcoming feature-length documentary Hollywood Ending, that delves into the larger, complex challenges facing the US Film Industry and the many professionals working within it, whose fates and livelihood are intertwined.
