2018 in Review

Just like years past, I get to the end of a year – an arbitrary but useful line – and simultaneously feel like I haven’t done enough and I just got done running a marathon. Then I look back at the photos I captured during the year of moments I felt were important, and I realize how much really happened during that last 365 day chunk.

  • I attended Sundance for the first time, and did so as press.
  • I left the first job I landed in LA.
  • Because I began a new job at Netflix.
  • I focused on building up my female peers and friends, creating new traditions that would bring us closer and help us get stronger.
  • I helped to launch BCPC London.
  • And I helped to bring various workshops to BCPC LA, indoors and out.
  • I took over administering BCPC’s PDAP program which impacted six lower income professionals and brought them to key events.
  • And I helped to build a new annual fundraiser that raised nearly $20,000 so I could expand our budget for 2019.
  • I worked closer with SMPTE Hollywood, bringing BCPC to an inclusion event, representing at the first Career Day, and attending regular board manager meetings.
  • I got the opportunity to visit Skywalker Ranch.
  • I spoke on or moderated four panels at NAB Show and recorded an interview with SMPTE.
  • I was honored as a StudioDaily Top Technologist and Creative.
  • I built an internal group at work to support emerging talent in the entertainment industry and led a workshop on selling your skills.
  • I created new connections with local colleges and high schools to help build a bridge for emerging talent.
  • I was selected as an Exceptional Woman in Production and Post.
  • I was published in the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal.
  • I chaired multiple sessions at the SMPTE Annual Technical Conference, including ones on imaging and inclusion.
  • I tried to take more time for myself, and mostly failed.
  • I took a step back from writing on Creative COW and spent more time finding up-and-coming professionals to mentor in writing, and edited their articles instead.
  • I did good work, and planned how to do it better.
