"Barry Sandrew, president of Legend3D, wants to transplant thousands of visual effects specialists from Los Angeles and other parts of the country to San Diego.
Targeting the movie industry’s backbone from its own backyard may sound bold, but his San Diego-based company has an impressive resume: converting some of the top-grossing movies of all time, including “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Transformers,” into 3D.
I want to give the studios an incentive to do business in San Diego where the proximity to movie production is more convenient for the filmmakers, Sandrew said.
Sandrew met with Mayor Jerry Sanders on March 1 about setting up an economic zone to attract 5,000 visual effects jobs from Hollywood"
I hope this works out, San Diego is an AWESOME city.
