The wrap, why even read it?

Thilo, the CEO, already stated it's not true, and his company is being damaged by that BS.

The wrap refused to take the article offline or change its contents (they are well known for their mistakes and unwillingness to go back on them, and the author only changed the title slightly).

You can check Cohen's twitter for quotes from the actual Thilo, and not some made up BS from a journalist who wasn't told what she's quoting, allegedly, verbatim.

Quote: Thilo writes: "BS I have not said that to her!! Why should I say this???? My company is getting damaged by this.

Quote: More Thilo: "Do you really think that I would inform my employees and my clients through The Wrap about such a move?"

Quote: Asked Thilo if Pixomondo is moving away from film. He wrote "NO"

They have got into hot water over that practice in the past, at least twice that I can recall.

Update from another source:


Pixomondo closes Shanghai facility
Quote:
"Multinational visual effects company Pixomondo has closed down its facility in Shanghai.
The unit, which serviced the feature film, corporate clients and commercials industries, officially closed its doors on 19 March. Some 20 employees lost their jobs, while a small handful were transferred to Beijing.

The closure reflects the on-going turmoil in the visual effects industry, which has seen high-profile US- based multinationals Digital Domain and Rhythm & Hues both in financial difficulties and change ownership. Pixomondo previously closed other facilities in London and Detroit.

Marcus Roth, general manager of the Shanghai unit, and Daniel Rajcic, its creative director, are now in the process of setting up a new company Image Unit.

Pixomondo was founded in 2001 by Thilo Kuther and built a network of facilities in the US, Canada, Germany and Asia."
