International Women's Day 2018

In honour of International Women's Day 2018 and #pressforprogress, here are some shout outs to some fantastic causes that are close to our heart here at Squint VFX - check them out if you haven't already!

She Says

  • An organisation providing free mentoring and events around the world for women in creative industries - their focus is championing women for senior positions and providing a global network for creative women. Sign up to your local group now! 

Women In VFX 

  • A collection of video interviews with some big cheeses from ILM, including VFX Supervisor Lindy Dequattro (Downsizing, Pacific Rim, The Great Gatsby) and CG Tech Supervisor Kaori Ogino (Rogue One, Jurassic World, Captain America: The Winder Soldier) amongst many others. The series aims to "highlight and advocate the talented women within the vfx field of film and television". 

Brewdog's "Pink IPA" beer for girls.. 

  • This marketing campaign has split opinion, but we love it! Brewdog have ironically rebranded their signature Punk IPA in pink/glittery bottles and are offering a 20% discount to anyone who identifies as a woman, whilst donating 20% of proceeds to the charity Women's Engineering Society.  This move from the brewers seeks to shine a light on the 20% gender pay gap.

St Vincent - Mass Seduction

  • Just an awesome album from rock star St. Vincent. Crank it up loud today!
