Foundry Session: Working in VFX - Black Perspectives

About this webinar

Join three top Black VFX professionals as they offer insight into their career journeys —from their stories starting out in vfx to their current role, the steps they made to get to where they are today, and the challenges they’ve faced along the way. This session will be hosted by Damii Dada, Project Manager at Foundry.

This session is an open and honest dialogue about accountability in the workplace, mental health and allyship. 

At a time when we’re not able to get together, Foundry is pleased to host webinars across industry-wide topics, developments and releases that we believe are relevant to our user base and the broader VFX and digital design communities. Our panel discussions are intended to provide an open forum for people to share their opinions, views and personal experiences. The views and opinions expressed belong to those that share them, and do not necessarily represent those of Foundry. Please read our policy for digital events.
