VESNY LIVE@5!!! with Special Guests
When: Mon May 09, 2022 05:00pm to 06:30pm EDT
VES LIVEAt5

Topic of Discussion:
The role of acquiring talent comes by many names, Recruiter, Artist Manager, Talent Acquisition, etc, but the question is the same: how do you find good people and how do you keep them? Join VES NY in conversation with recruiters from Crafty Apes, Chicken Bone FX and Pixar Animation Studios.

Please RSVP and register for a seat at the zoom table!

Meet our guests:

Melissa Blakey’s journey began in a tiny little Connecticut seaside town, where the only access to “Hollywood” was the big movie theater complex, about a 45-minute drive away. It was during one of those many movie outings that she suddenly became curious to learn what goes on behind-the-scenes. After two decades of VFX Producing, she transitioned into recruiting. Melissa is thrilled to be a part of growing the Crafty Apes team globally, aiding in the launch of multiple locations, and seeking out the best talent our industry has to offer. In her spare time, she’s heading to the beach with her son, traveling, and dabbling in meditative hobbies such as cooking and gardening.

Mindy Berardini joined Pixar Animation Studios March 2021 as a Recruiter. Before Pixar, Mindy was at Blue Sky Studios and has been working in Talent Development for 10 years. She’s recruited for roles for the entire animation pipeline but currently supports departments like Layout, FX, Sim, Lighting and Rendering.

Emma Everett is the Director of Talent & Culture at Chicken Bone FX Studios. She is responsible for recruiting visual effects professionals, talent planning and retention, company culture, and marketing. Throughout her career, Emma has always been driven by a drive for success balanced against a people-first ethos. She has worked in multiple industries taking best practices with her everywhere she goes. Outside of work, Emma enjoys nature, good food, and family with her two young daughters and husband. She is passionate about social issues related to Aspergers/Autism and homelessness.

As you may know, over the last couple of years, we have been working hard to put together a one-of-a-kind event that would gather cross-industry pioneers from around the globe, and bring to you the most advanced real-time tools, technologies and practices that are changing the way we live and do business.

By this time, we should have been polishing the last details with our venues, preparing signs, printing out programs and badges, sending you directions… But 2020, it seems, has decided otherwise.

Still, we know that this community has the power, even – or maybe especially – in this disruptive time, to transform our practices and maintain communication across industries – together and in real-time. After all, digital agility is part of our DNA here at RealTime Conference, as we have been working with a 100% remote community from day 1. Since the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted our original plans for trans-Atlantic convenings, connected in real-time, we have been working relentlessly to pivot to bring you a 100% virtual RealTime Conference, without sacrificing the richness of our program, and remaining as engaged and interactive as possible. And we are grateful to have been blessed with such a supportive community of partners, speakers, and collaborators that is the RealTime family.

In the spirit of fellowship, community, solidarity, and faith in the future, we are waiving all registration fees, and invite you to join us, at no cost, at the RealTime Conference in real-time online.

This is your opportunity to connect, learn, and share with leaders and cutting-edge innovators who are forging the future of real-time engagement. You may be under the impression that real-time technology only impacts a few industries, but our incredible RealTime family, featuring top-tier speakers from companies such as Intel, Epic Games, Google, Facebook, Adobe, Activision, Foundry, Weta Digital, Magnopus, Spatial, Daimler, 3Lateral, Oculus VR, Digital Domain, Pixar, and more… will be sharing with you extraordinary real-time’s enabling technologies and present-day applications on their own infrastructure, business, and resources. Topics will touch on everything from “Crafting Real and Virtual Architecture in Real-Time” and “Fostering Customers Engagement Though Real-Time Interactive Experiences” to “Bringing Real-Time Pipelines to Movie Making” and “The Real in Real-Time Photoreal Digital Humans”.

Last, but not least, a panel will address a sensitive topic as of today: “How to address the current climate and what studios, producers and companies could do to combat this in the future by making the most of real time technology”.

While we are still tweaking the hows & abouts of this online conferencing, please bear with us, and check our website for updates!! We’ll be back soon with more details as to how to register and a full program of keynotes and panel discussion.

Lesley Robson-Foster – this year’s Empire Award honoree

Revered by broadcasters and directors, admired by the VFX industry, Lesley is a force of nature in her world. She has dedicated her professional life in the pursuit of perfection and she has come pretty close. In the process she has managed to push the envelope in some of the most prestigious television series in recent decades.

Lesley Robson-Foster’s career began at BBC television and continued at ILM until she eventually went on her own as a freelance visual effects supervisor.

She has shared her talents in NYC and LA on television series and feature films, including Six Feet Under, Sex and the City, The Wire, Ugly Betty, HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce, The Great Gatsby, Boardwalk Empire, Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl and Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick, Mosaic and Logan Lucky.
