More than 150 visual effects workers in the last two weeks have donated funds to challenge the legality of foreign film subsidies that have buffeted California's visual effects industry. "We're fighting for the industry we love," said Rachael Campbell, a visual effects artist and campaign donor.

Judy Seckler DOWNTOWN -- For Glendale Unified middle school students, promotion to high school will be a game of keeping track of credits -- the result of more stringent requirements recently approved by the school board. Starting in the fall, seventh-graders will be required to earn 90 credits to move on to high school, including 20 credits of language arts and math, Supt. Jim Brown said. In fall 2001, the credits required will increase to 100. However, if a student received one F grade in math or English, he or she will not be promoted unless the class is successfully completed in summer school.

As I understand it, the proposed credit system will apply equally for grades received that are D or better. In other words, five credits for a D; five credits for an A. The new tougher system will also allow students to get an F in up to four courses, except math and English, and still graduate. Boy!

Judy Seckler DOWNTOWN -- The Glendale Unified School District will examine revisions and additions today to its high school graduation requirements. Most of the recommended revisions will "clean up" the policy, board member Lina Harper said. The most discussed item would probably be the math requirement, she said. The policy, which calls for three years and 30 credits of math, would require students to take 20 credits of math in two years, if the board approves the revisions.

Assemblymen Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) and Raul Bocanegra (D-Pacoima) responded this week to a report about the state's filming industry that suggests new tax incentives might help keep movie and television studios shooting in California. The California Legislative Analyst's Office found that each job directly created by the movie industry in California generates 2.7 indirect jobs, resulting in the addition of hundreds of thousands of new positions. Also, the report found that for every dollar spent, there is a dollar-for-dollar return to state and local governments.

Glendale Unified school board challenger Armina Gharpetian has raised far more money than her competitors so far, taking in roughly $20,000 as of March 16, according the most recent filings. Records show 26 contributors donated about $7,000 to Gharpetian's campaign for the period of Feb. 17 through March 16. That's more than all but one of her six competitors have raised so far for the entire campaign. And she's done it without hosting a major fundraiser. Gharpetian said her participation in several “meet-and-greets” have been proven effective in interacting with voters.
