LOS ANGELES — The New York-based non-profit Blue Collar Post Collective (BCPC) has officially launched its West Coast effort, with board member Kylee Peña stepping up to form a committee of local volunteers from throughout the post industry, who will build and tailor the organization for the region.
“There are a number of post user groups and meet-ups to choose from here, but Los Angeles has never seen anything like the BCPC,” she notes. “By keeping our events free and community-driven, we’re providing the access that underrepresented and underprivileged individuals need to thrive in post production in LA. We listen to what our members want, and we do that -- no pay walls or ulterior motives.”
BCPC West will hold a launch party on June 11th from 6pm to 8pm at St. Felix Hollywood (1602 N. Cahuenga Blvd). People from all areas of the post production industry, at all levels of experience, are welcome to attend this social meet-up. After a launch party, BCPC West will present a summer series of free discussions on topics that are important, but often overlooked. The first of these sessions will be “Breaking Barriers: Making Post More Inclusive,” featuring a diverse panel of professionals across all areas of post discussing real solutions to important issues currently facing the industry.
