July 18, 2018 HPA YEP Webinar: The Art of Visual Effects



In its commitment to help develop the next generation of entertainment professionals, the HPA launched the Young Entertainment Professionals Program (YEP); a program created to encourage worthy individuals to follow a career in the media content industry. YEP is but one part of a multi-tiered mentorship strategy of the HPA.

The goal of YEP is to attract and mentor individuals in the workforce between the ages of 21 and 35 by introducing them to working professionals, connecting them with events and resources that will further their career, and encouraging them to be active in the HPA and SMPTE. The Young Entertainment Professionals Program is open to anyone interested to expand their knowledge and build their media and entertainment career.

The inaugural launch of YEP was sponsored by the HPA Women in Post Committee who will once again oversee the application process for the 2017 YEP program. In order to be considered for the YEP program, an application must be submitted along with a recommendation from an employer or professional project supervisor.  Click here to be added to the YEP mailing list.
