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 LA Workshop: Assistant Editing in Scripted TV - 7/14 - 1PM - Hollywood

Join us for our first BCPC LA Workshop on Assistant Editing in Scripted Television! Assistant Editor Monica Daniel will walk through her approach to working on shows like Supergirl, Colony, and Altered Carbon from beginning to end.

Monica's presentation will be based on the day-to-day of being an assistant editor working in Hollywood on major scripted television shows and will include real world, real time examples in building sound design and temp visual effects. Monica will be working in Avid Media Composer for this workshop since it’s the most common software used in this space, but many of the principles learned can be applied to any NLE.

The workshop will be followed by a mixer with Monica, her special guests, and the BCPC community.

The workshop requires a ticket for entry. It is currently at capacity, but you can sign up for the wait list.

All attendees will receive a free scene to practice with from our in-kind sponsor Editstock!
