上周五(2012-09-07)刚关闭了圣露西工作室的Digital Domain Media Group(以下简称DD),在本周二(2012-09-11)正式申请破产保护,核心业务被迫公开拍卖,回笼资金将用于偿还债务。这家由詹姆斯·卡梅隆及其合伙人共同创建的顶级特效团队,曾为《泰坦尼克号》,《创:世纪》,《变形金刚》(以及我很喜欢的《钢铁侠》)制作特效,曾多次获得奥斯卡最佳特效将和技术成就奖,开发了一流的合成软件Nuke,如今正式走向终结。

我的心情,可以用Mailing List上的主题来表达:A sad day, in this part of the country, for digital artists.

Digital Domain seeks bankruptcy protection, to sell core business

Financially struggling Digital Domain Media Group, owner of one of the entertainment industry's leading visual effects companies, said Tuesday it had filed a voluntary bankruptcy petition.
Digital Domain said it was seeking protection from creditors under Chapter 11 of the federal bankruptcy code as part of an effort to "ensure the long-term future of its core business" and trigger a "sale of assets."
The company announced that it entered an agreement with Searchlight Capital Partners to sell Venice-base Digital Domain Productions, a subsidiary that operates core visual effects business for the film, television and advertising industries, for $15 million.
The sale is subject to approval by the court. Digital Domain's senior debt holders also have agreed to provide Digital Domain up to $20 million in financing to pay operating expenses, including wages.
"We are excited to begin this new chapter in our history and look forward to partnering with Searchlight,'' said Ed Ulbrich, the newly appointed chief executive of Digital Domain Productions. "The capital commitment of Searchlight will enable us to continue to bring our expertise to feature films, advertising, games, and other media experiences, with a focus on what we do best -- creating amazing digital productions."
Founded in 1993 by director James Cameron and other partners, Digital Domain has created effects for such movies as "Titantic," "Tron: Legacy" and the "Transformers" films.
As of June 30, Digital Domain said it had assets of $205 million and liabilities of $214 million.
Tuesday's bankruptcy filing follows Digital Domain's announcement last week that the company was closing its animation studio in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and laying off most of its 320 employees. Chief Executive John Textor also abruptly resigned.
