'Life of Pi' effects firm headhunting in Taiwan, offers 200 job openings

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The U.S.-based company behind the stunning visual effects in Ang Lee's Oscar wining movie "Life of Pi" is offering 200 job openings in Taiwan, an executive said yesterday.

Rhythm & Hues (R&H) is looking for special effects engineers, 3D animation artists and creative personnel to join its workshop in Kaohsiung, Southern Taiwan, the executive was cited as saying by the Central News Agency.

R&H, which has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States, set up the Kaohsiung operation in 2011.

The U.S.-based firm was among 65 companies running booths at a job fair at National Chung Hsing University (NCHU) in Taichung.

A NCHU information technology student, surnamed Wang, said he was impressed by the visual effects in "Life of Pi" and was interested in joining the company. He said he expects a starting monthly salary of NT$30,000.

More than 6,000 openings were offered by these companies, and 4,000 of them were from 25 local and foreign high-tech electronics firms, such as chip-maker Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), lens maker Largan and glass maker Corning, the CNA said.

I can't even rent a studio in LA for NT$30,000 a month. F*** Hollywood I'll be streaming everything for free.
