Variety: Trouble at Newbreed VFX Cementing Montreal’s Bad Rep

Quote:
"he word has gone out again in visual effects business: “There’s trouble in Montreal.” Quebec’s new incentives are turning Montreal into a burgeoning hotspot for the global vfx biz. But the city has a bad reputation among vfx artists due to a history of bad management, bankruptcies and/or artists going unpaid at its vfx facilities, notably Meteor Studios, DamnFX, Red FX and Fake Studios.

Now history seems to be repeating itself at Newbreed VFX, whose prexy Josee Lalumiere is the former general manager of DamnFX. Newbreed employees tell Variety they have been paid late or have gone unpaid altogether for weeks of work. According to some of their accounts, most employees have quit and the vfx company is having trouble completing its work.

Newbreed was working on Mandalay Pictures’ “Horns,” starting Juno Temple and Daniel Radcliffe, and “Site 146” for Fox International. On its website, it lists among its credits “Piranha 3D,” ”Mirror Mirror” and “Transformers: Dark of the Moon.”

If I knew that the same general manager was at a place, where they previously had been delinquent at another studio... I would have stayed away from any job there.
