One of the things we have been impressed with since the town hall was announced is the grass roots growth we have seen in the community.

VEG – Visual Effects Guild Google Doc
“This is meant just as a discussion piece – if a Visual Effects Guild were formed – what would it be like, and what are the issues that would need to be resolved?”
Lucas Martell blog post “VFX Union Solution” with an explanation and link to a Google Spreadsheet form where people can enter hours anonymously to start to get a global sense of hours worked vs. hours paid.
