DescriptionInclusionFX is a platform designed to support and amplify underrepresented voices in visual effects (VFX) for features, television, and games industries. Over the past two years, InclusionFX has conducted panel discussions and interviews with diverse talents working as expert professionals in the VFX industries. These hour-long discussions have been shared online to inspire others interested in pursuing careers in these fields. The panel members and interviewees shared their experiences, perspectives, and insights into their journeys into VFX. This talk will bring together the outcomes from these discussions to share at the SIGGRAPH Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Summit, presenting the common themes that emerged from the diverse groups working in the VFX industries. These themes include contributions to product development, representation, promoting diversity, and having a seat at the table. The talk will also discuss how we in the DEI community can support more diverse groups pursue careers in VFX.
