We are a cross-company initiative to promote diversity and inclusion in the VFX industry.
Many VFX companies, educational establishments and industry organisations have come together to create initiatives & events to help raise awareness and champion the important issue, helping to bring about change.
We had our first meeting!
Spearheaded by Simon Devereux at The Mill.
Eight world-class VFX studios pooled their resources and arranged a week of insightful talks and panel discussions, all free to attend. The highlight of the week was the Careers Day in Westminster Kingsway College, where studios gave advice and offered mentoring to 15-18 year old students.
Our partner VFX studios paid for our stand at the careers fair at the Birmingham NEC, where over 70,000 students attended. With the aim of raising awareness of VFX career opportunities to a wider, more diverse population.
We've kicked off plans for lots more events and collaborations this year, watch this space.
