Earlier this week, MPC’s Senior Producer, Nicole Saccardi and Creative Director, Michael Gregory, hosted a VFX Zoom presentation to 40 video production students from Vista Del Lago High School in Sacramento, California. Inspiring the next generation to consider a career in VFX and helping them to discover the breadth of opportunity around them.

Nicole and Gregory talked the class through a breakdown MPC created for Volkswagen “Born Confident” campaign, featuring a VFX baby ram.

“I was thrilled with the idea to speak with high school students about visual effects. I was part of a multimedia academy program in high school…I remember how exciting it was to talk to professionals working in the real world in video production. High school is such a confusing time, when a whole world of life choices lay at your fingertips. I liked the idea of introducing something new, which they may not have previously considered as a future career path. Additionally, given what’s going on in the world today, it seemed like the perfect time to give back to the community!”

Thanks Vista Del Lago High School for thinking of us.
