After a punishing few days of headlines, thank fucking christ for this story. A group of brave soldiers* have offered a ringing endorsement of Mike Gatto’s efforts to keep film and TV productions in LA. This proud group of patriotic young men an women have urged Gatto to take the legislation even further by imposing a tariff on the “unfair and illegal competition” offered by sub-American countries and their armies of affordable computer effects artists.
When heroes talk, America listens. So let’s hope the courageous sacrifices they’ve offered in the name of liberty and justice were not made in vain. Support Mike Gatto.
* By “soldiers,” I am referring to the esteemed author and readers of the VFX Soldier blog, and can only assume that “VFX” is the designation for the most covert and elite branch of our Armed Services.
