Blue Collar Post Collective West launched in Los Angeles in June 2016, marking the first expansion from the New York based group since its inception. Led by then West VP Kylee Peña, the west coast edition of the group rapidly expanded to hundreds of members. #BCPCWest has held monthly meet-ups in Hollywood nearly every month since, as well as regular free educational panels with notable industry figures such as Catherine Haight ACE and Mark Hartzell, as well as people representing all aspects of post production across television, film and other media.

Next Up: October Meet-Up - 10/21 - 6PM - Saint Felix

Last Up: 10/7 - 3PM - BCPCWest Post Talks: Finding Success in Unscripted Television

Screen Shot 2017-09-08 at 9.53.20 AM.png

Join BCPCWest for another in a series of post talks in Los Angeles to discuss having a successful career in unscripted television. A lot of people think unscripted television -- reality, documentary, awards shows -- is merely a stepping stone to scripted. But this panel of post production workers have had solid careers in unscripted and many of them plan to stay there for the duration. Whether unscripted is the long-term plan for you or not, finding ways to enter the genre and be successful is important to your future whether you're a technician, editor, assistant, producer, or something else entirely. 

Featuring Mary DeChambres, ACE (editor, Project Runway) Sean Linal (assistant editor, The Bachelor, Cupcake Wars), La-Aja Hernandez (assistant editor, The Price is Right, American Idol), a TBA producer, and moderator Mike Api (American Ninja Warrior, The Rio Olympics). 

An Eventbrite ticket is required for this event.
