Our Director of Business Development joins the cream of the London crop
Outpost is pleased to announce that our Director of Business Development, Danny Duke, has been elected to the Board of Managers at the prestigious Visual Effects Society.
Danny joins six other newly elected board members for the London section of the VES for the term of January 2019 – December 2020, with the aim to bring recognition to the art of visual, represent the visual effects community, and educate and enrich the Society and the visual effects world as a whole.
“I'm incredibly excited to be working with the other board members to raise the profile of the visual effects created here in the UK, and specifically all the talented people who contribute to them,” says Danny.
“VES London represents some magnificent talent, not just in London, but all around the UK and is made of up a truly global workforce. I aim to support, nurture and grow this community; whether by engaging with educators or petitioning government bodies to recognise the cultural and financial impact of our industry.”
As part of the new role, Danny will join monthly board meetings to plan activities for the London section, as well as lead events or activities throughout the year.
Earlier in January, the Visual Effects Society announced the nomination list for its annual awards due to take place on February 5 2019.
