VFX artist talks about experience at MPC Vancouver

Posted: October 21, 2010 in Uncategorized


  1. MPC is the quintessential example of the problem with VFX.

    Here is a foreign owned company in Vancouver. that hires as few Canadians as it has to.

    they treat Canadian Labour law like dogs a treats a fire hydrant, and artists like 17 century serfs.

    A company where getting paid for your time is novel.

    A pat on the head and smack in mouth, and they send you home with a British smile “you should be happy to work on such cool projects that we have.”

    Well said, angry as hell. I couldn’t have said it better and I am the one who wrote the original email. I wish more peeps spoke out, maybe then things would start changing.

  3. LOLWTF_cowboy says:

    If you complain that you don’t want to work for free they say, “Well, you have to give something back to us.” the concept of “pay” seems odd to them.
