In light of current events and the subsequent postponement of our 'Q-VFX Picture' event and cancellation of this years Pride festival, the Q-VFX team wanted to provide as much information that we know of to provide some love and support to our community currently on lockdown.
Q-VFX was originally set up as a supportive hub, and we decided that social distancing and 'staying at home' wasn't going to stop us from extending a helping hand and sharing resources that we've used and we know that others have benefitted from.
So here it is, our Q-VFX Support Pack, a list of books, apps, phone lines and other feeds that we hope will go some way to getting you through this very tough time for all of us! We hope this goes some way to support you add bring some positivity to your day.
