Uh no, I read the whole thing, including the cringeworthy quoting of The Daily Mail, a tabloid with all the journalistic integrity of a Hollywood map of the stars' homes.
What I'm getting fed up with is the constant pot-stirring by people with little to no experience in the VFX industry themselves, because increasingly it's coming across as if the people posting these comments are actually revelling in the misery. Telling people they're too expensive was borderline offensive the other day, and this thread is little more than a long-winded repost of the same sentiment. The only difference is that instead of repeating your "VFX artists get paid too much" comment, you're saying "the clients think you're too expensive". It's the same thing, at the end of the day. General Discussions seems to have become an orgy of misery, being stoked by people who don't even work in the field. It's not that you're not entitled to your opinion, but more a case of you don't really understand how the industry works, let alone the state it's currently in, even though you think you do.
I think I need a break from the forums this evening or else I'm going to snap at someone because this is really starting to piss me off.
