For decades, Hollywood has been a stronghold of the US labor movement, with groups such as the Producers Guild of America and the Screen Actors Guild defending the interests of everyone from directors to stagehands. But one notable crowd has been left out: the visual effects professionals who create graphics that have grown to account for as much as 60% of film budgets.
