Informal Discussion

Date:
Feb 27 2013

 

As you are aware from the past and recent news, it seems as if there is much confusion and tension surrounding visual effects globally, our contribution, compensation and recognition leading to a viable and stable companies.


As a result, we are planning a community meeting to discuss this topic on Friday, March 8th at 9:45 am.  Venue is being verified based on attendees.  Please email Shirlyn@casont.ca your attendance and next week she will send you the location details.  I wanted you to save the date as this is an important topic for our industry worldwide.

It will be an informal discussion amongst peers to share ideas and information and formulate a strategy if possible to help us all through these strange and interesting times.

As a start I would like to share some information that Colin Davies and Pete Denomme shared with us..
