SMPTE and Hollywood Post Alliance Present Women in Technology Event
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and the Hollywood Post Alliance (HPA) Women in Post presented “Wendy Aylsworth in Conversation with Friends” to a full house Monday, in conjunction with the SMPTE 2013 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition in Hollywood. The event, which sold out well in advance, attracted a diverse group of women who are engaged in a variety of roles in the media and technology industry. SMPTE deals in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment and technology industries. The Women in Post group of the HPA — the trade association for the postproduction community — attracts professional women who fill many technical, creative and leadership roles in postproduction. SMPTE and HPA worked together to develop the event as a way to reach these women, who have crucial responsibilities and face many challenges.
