If you’ve been following the #GalsNGear hashtag on Twitter, then you know I’ve been working behind the scenes with many colleages–male and female–across production and post to put the focus on women in the technical fields of our industry. We want to be sure these professionals get the limelight they deserve, get access to the best gear, and also help bring along the next generation of women across the industry. Several hundred folks attended our most recent VR, production and post gear demos, and enjoyed our killer panel with women in film finance, VR, cinematography, and film finishing during NAB New York (shout-out to our partners NAB, Adorama and Black Magic Design). I’m looking forward to seeing friends and colleagues at IABM in London this weekend, and at NAB Vegas this spring. If you’ve got an idea for a #GalsNGear pop-up event at an industry gathering or film festival near you, give me a shout.
