Life of Pi picture

Trivia: Rhythm and Hues won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects for this film. It was their third Oscar. But ironically, the company had to declare bankruptcy and lay-off half their staff just a few months before they won. And when the company was brought up during an acceptance speech for the film, the microphone was cut off. This led to widespread demonstrations and protests against the film and director Ang Lee by effects artists, as they are often marginalized, overworked and underpaid by studios.
