' Tara Donovan - Animator: Panel Moderator at the Spark FX Diversity Summit 2018

Panel Moderator at the Spark FX Diversity Summit 2018

February 2018

I had the honour of moderating a panel at the Spark FX Diversity Summit on the ‘WOMEN IN VFX’ PROJECT produced by the wonderful Charmaine Chan. Charmaine has interviewed over 50 women in three countries in an effort to celebrate and bring a voice to women working in the industry. Charmaine shared a wealth of information and fielded great questions from the audience about how to promote and support creative women in our field. Through her work she addresses some of the common stumbling blocks to women's advancement in VFX where women make up only 7-17% of the industry. Charmaine is a full-time compositor and area tech lead at ILM. It was super fun meeting the creative and vivacious Charmaine in person and I was very happy to be part of the Diversity Summit at SparkFX.
Charmaine created this SparkFX 2018 edition of Women in VFX just for us - she even got me front of the camera.
