.Rhythm & Hues Design Team Launches Eevolver

The independent, privately-owned firm will offer design and creative services for filmed entertainment, advertising and new media.

Stacy Burstin, who headed Rhythm & Hues' design division until recently exiting the company, has launched Eevolver, a new one-stop design and creative services firm for filmed entertainment, advertising, and new-media clients.

The opening of Playa del Rey-based Eevolver was announced Friday. Burstin told The Hollywood Reporter that shortly before R&H filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on Feb. 13, its president and founder John Hughes “gave his permission to spin off the design division that I founded ... due to the circumstances.”"

So it seems to me , that - in a nutshell - the management and creativity part of that company stays in California under some kind of different name and that the labor- and electricpower intensive "sweatshop"-jobs are transfered to Taiwan as comunicatontechnology and globalization make it possible and also it is kind of demanded to be able to stay in business?

I am not from this industry and kind of roughly followed the other threads on this topic.
But it seems to happen in many industries nowadays.
For instance, a friend of mine works at Otto, comparable to amazon , were most of the lower administration tasks are shifted to India.
On the other hand, I have heard of many examples, were companys have rellocated productionjobs to Germany from eastern countries or china, due to huge drawbacks with efficieny, quality and language, mentality and other comunicationproblems.
But since the jobs got lost first, they probably dont return in the same quality.

I hope the people, who lost there jobs in California will find new ones soon, because its my impression, that there is an evergrowing demand for VFX be it in tv or gaming or whatsoever.
