Steve Wang has worked for ADI sculpting on both Alien Resurrection and AVPR. Same thing could be happening here. When people want one FX studio over another, I don't think they really realize how many artists are work for hire and take up jobs rotating between studios. I get the argument that management makes a significant difference, but as we've also seen the director and the producers have made decisions that ADI have disagreed with. An artist team is entirely different on different projects, even with the same studio.





Woah :o Thank you for such amazing post  :o



Where have you been?  ;)

In all seriousness though I think there's a wrinkle here. If my recollection is correct, Wang was a freelancer hired by ADI for AvP Requiem. But a few years later, Steve Wang created his own studio (Onyx Forge Studios) that is now a competitor to ADI, bidding on the same jobs, etc. So like with The Predator, where ADI had creature duties, but an entirely different studio had armor & bio-mask duties... I believe it could possibly turn into a similar situation here.

But yeah, ADI doesn’t have the revenue to maintain talent on the payroll as permanent employees so they hire freelancers per job. We saw them advertising for workers recently, which tipped us that this probably for Skulls:

Let's try this again lol :laugh: I'm Disney and I decide to hire Voodoo studio to design the Predators and then Kradan's studio to design the fishnet, and Kradan worked as a freelance artist for Voodoo before creating his studio. But maybe Kradan's Predators are better than Voodoo's so we should give Kradan Studios the entire Predator and let Voodoo do the fishnet 🤔 Mmmm ok got it.  ;)

Nailed it!

What's interesting is Jen Roomes posted that she is working for both studios... StudioADI during the week and Onyx Forge Studio on the weekends. I would love to know what she's doing at each studio!  🤔

So that lawsuit didn't hinder production? Can we expect this thing in theaters next year?

Part of me feels like regardless of the outcome, the lawsuit wouldn't affect the movie.
