    One of S.F best known VFX companies, "The Orphanage", is closing down....
    I didn't expect this to happen... I think nobody did. Tis place was around for 10 years and it always seemed like a stable work place for VFX artists.

    I never had the chance to work there, but a lot of my VFX artists friends and colleges are working there. They told me that there were rumors about shutting down but I guess now its for real....

    The Orphanage shuts down in S.F. - Entertainment News, Business News, Media - Variety
