(Hollywood, CA--May 4, 2017) On Saturday May 13 in Hollywood, and with a free worldwide livestream, the latest in the Blue Collar Post Collective's Post Talks series will take a closer look at the VFX pipeline from offline to artists to online and delivery. We'll talk about the collaboration between editorial and VFX houses on scripted content, promos and commercials, the importance of communication across departments, the different roles involved in this pipeline, and how to find jobs and succeed in them! This will be a great discussion for anyone in offline, online or VFX to understand how visual effects happen and discover jobs on both ends of the pipe they may not have known about before.

This panel is scheduled to be live streamed in partnership with The SIM Group, so no matter where you are in the world you can watch and learn too. We'll also be taking questions from the livestream and Twitter. Bookmark the livestream here!
