Reel FX To Rhythm & Hues Artists: We Want You!

If there’s any silver lining to yesterday’s awful news about Rhythm & Hues, it’s that other companies hunger for the services of Rhythm & Hues’ respected crew. Reel FX is among the companies that has been most vocal about its desire to hire some of the hundreds of R&H employees who are expected to be laid off.

The Santa Monica and Dallas-based Reel FX, which is brashly entering the world of CG feature films by simultaneously producing two major pictures—Jimmy Hayward’s Turkeys and Jorge Gutierrez’s Book of Life—posted a special recruitment page for unemployed Rhythm & Hues artists. It included the following note:

This recruiting tab was created for those Rhythm and Hues [artists] who have been affected by their recent situation. Please know our thoughts are with you.

Thumbs up to Reel FX for doing its part to create a positive impact out of an unfortunate situation.

    That’s good news. I guess sometimes timing can work out. Best to everyone and I hope that this is just one option ex-employees have.

    That’s nice. R&H clearly had a TON of talented people, don’t want that to go to waste. (especially since they’re so good with animal CGI, which is crazy hard to do) If I was running a special effects company I’d be going nuts trying to hire ‘em! XD

    If she’s the boss I’ll work for nothing.
