Increasing Diversity in VFX with Remote VFX Work: Breaking Down Geographic Barriers

 

The VFX industry has historically been centered around in-person networking and office-based work, making it challenging for people of color and those from outside VFX hubs to pursue careers in the field. However, remote working has revolutionized the industry by removing these geographic barriers and increasing access to VFX work.

 

The latest report by UK Screen Alliance found that only 19% of the VFX industry is made up of people of color, and BAME representation accounts for just 14% of the workforce. Flexible work-from-home models have helped address this issue by providing a more accessible career option for diverse talent, removing unconscious bias and social barriers.

 

Remote working has become widely accepted in many industries due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Creative professionals have thrived with this work style and have become more productive. When collaborating in remote VFX working module, studios with flexible work environments can proactively increase diversity in VFX industry by presenting a more accessible career option for people looking to enter the industry.

 

Remote VFX working allows creative professionals to express their authentic selves, resulting in fresher ideas and happier individuals. VFX studios can access more talent from around the world, allowing them to take on work while having teams geographically closer to clients based anywhere in the world.

 

VFX supervisor Akca Elmas based in Istanbul has flourished creatively while working remotely from her home, interacting with teams across the globe. Similarly, Production Manager Mayumi Boruah, based in India, has been able to care for her young son while working remotely. Remote work has given these professionals the flexibility to maintain their lifestyle, family, and health while applying their talents to VFX projects.

 

The VFX industry needs to continue to embrace and grow their reliance on remote or flexible work to increase diversity in the field. The fusion of cultures and skills on projects creates more creative and technically excellent projects when working with a global team.
