Blue Collar Post Collective Gains Co-President, Refreshed Board
Editor Chelsea Taylor Becomes Co-President of Major Film and TV Non-Profit
The Blue Collar Post Collective announced the revision and expansion of their leadership including the promotion of New York-based editor Chelsea Taylor to Co-President.
A long time committee member serving the New York BCPC community, Taylor shifts to the remaining vacancy on the Executive Committee, joining Co-President Kylee Peña and Treasurer Gaby Allen in the central leadership of the entire organization.
Taylor added: “Joining the Blue Collar Post Collective at such an early stage in my career has been instrumental to my growth, and I am excited to impact other people the way this community has impacted me. Through my work with BCPC over the past three years, I have seen the effect that cultivating a strong, supportive, and diverse community can have on someone’s individual path to success, and on the larger industry. I’m excited to keep spreading our mission to even more people as we continue to rapidly expand.”
An annual review and refresh of the board concluded in some additional changes. Co-founder and editor Janis Vogel has been promoted to chair of the board. New board members include editor Monica Daniel, John Eremic (HBO), editor Norman Hollyn ACE (USC), and online editor Peter Amies to our board! They will join previous members film historian Bobbie O’Steen, Leo De Wolff (Netflix), media thought leader Katie Hinsen, and DI producer and deputy chair James Reyes (Goldcrest).
As the largest grassroots non-profit that supports emerging post production professionals, Blue Collar Post Collective continues to expand its programs, meet-ups, and educational events in order to change the face of what an expert looks like in the post industry. Since last summer, the group has doubled its membership, expanded from New York and LA to London, and provided half a dozen lower-income working professionals with financial support to attend events like NAB Show, Sight Sound & Story, and EditFest LA through a Professional Development Accessibility Program.
