Panel: VFX Pipeline in TV, Film and Beyond

Hear about the experiences of four Los Angeles based creatives working in different areas of the VFX pipeline, from offline editorial to finishing. For many in post production these roles and processes are a bit of a mystery -- how do these shots get tracked, finished, and seen? What does a VFX editor do? How does someone find these jobs and become successful in them?

Panel: Age Is Just a Number

"Ageism" is a hot topic in any industry, and post production is no different. Each generation of post pros experiences a wildly different set of challenges as they come up the ranks, with rapidly evolving technology changing every part of post constantly. By sharing our experiences and challenges related to age and the perception surrounding it, we can begin to break down the biases attached -- age is just a number, and it doesn't determine ability.

During this panel discussion, we'll address our experiences and strategies for keeping our mental health in check in a demanding and fast-paced industry.

No tech questions, no debates, no critique. Let's talk about you. How are you? No really, how are you?

Panel: Making Post More Inclusive

We’ll talk about our own experiences, and how we can apply those to build each other up and change what the face of an expert looks like in the machine room, DI theater, edit suite, or executive conference room. How can we all work together to make real change for the future of post production?

One-on-One: Editor Conversations V2: A Conversation with Legendary Film Editor Susan E. Morse, ACE

Susan E. Morse ACE, known as “Sandy,” graduated Yale with a degree in History before going to Film School at NYU. She never graduated film school, though, because she took an internship that turned into a job and she never looked back.

Early in her career she was an Assistant Editor, working on "Annie Hall" and Interiors. After assisting on a handful of films, she became Woody Allen’s film editor, across the 22-year height of his filmmaking career. 

But her career isn’t all Woody. In 1980, Sandy was Associate Editor alongside Thelma Schoonmaker on "Raging Bull," worked on Marc Lawrence’s "Two Week’s Notice," "Music and Lyrics" and "Did You Hear About The Morgans?," and cut episodes of "Louie" and "Billions". Right now, she’s working down the hall here at Light Iron on a feature called "Novitiate." 

She has been nominated for an Oscar, 5 BAFTAs and an Emmy. When she was honored with a Muse Award in 2005, she publicly thanked every one of her Assistant Editors as part of her presentation.
