RH consists of a fine bunch of people and this is sad to hear. They produce world class fx (two Oscar nominations this year) and produce a good chunk of their work in India, Malaysia, Vancouver and rendering in Taiwan.
IMHO a lot of what goes wrong in vfx is squarely coming from the client side. Ridiculous demands, directors that have zero knowledge of the cg process, truly shitty plates with sets and characters that have to be completely replaced because somebody can’t be arsed to shoot something right, major plot changes up to the last minute, etc.
Imagine how amazingly efficient a studio could be if a director who actually knows his shit would be directly sitting in an office within reach of the artists, without the multiple levels of communications between them.
