BCPC life adapted to Los Angeles living.
Blue Collar Post Collective LA launched in Los Angeles in June 2016, marking the first expansion from the New York based group since its inception. Led by then LA VP Kylee Peña (and originally titled BCPC West), the west coast edition of the group rapidly expanded to hundreds of members. #BCPCLA 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.
BCPC and MPEG Panel: Joining the Motion Picture Editors Guild
Join the Blue Collar Post Collective in a conversation with the Motion Picture Editors Guild. In an attempt to make the process of joining the union a little less daunting, members of the Editors Guild will share their paths to joining the union and offer their perspectives on what union membership is all about.
This event is targeted to those interested in joining the Editors Guild, but have questions about the process and what it means to be part of a union. You must register on Eventbrite to attend. Seats are limited.
March Meet-Up - TBD- 6PM - Saint Felix Hollywood
We're back at our usual spot on the back patio of Saint Felix Hollywood. Come by and hang out with your pals in post production and meet some new ones! Our meet-ups aim to be welcoming and inclusive, so don't be intimidated. We're all a bunch of nerds working in post who want to be friends with each other.
