Hogarth and Blanchard Launch Conduit Seminars

Industry insiders Pam Hogarth and Debra Blanchard Knight have launched Conduit Seminars to help production professionals find jobs and enhance their skills. The first session,  ”Job Hunting in Creative Industries,” will take place on Saturday, July 26th,  1:00 pm – 5:00 pm at Otis College of Art and Design (9045 Lincoln Blvd., Los Angeles).

“We’re so excited about sharing what we know with the wonderfully talented people who make up our industry,” says Blanchard Knight. “They have so much to offer, but frequently don’t know how to survive in these crazy, changing times. We’re here to offer some sanity and guidance.”
Seven years ago, Blanchard Knight founded Fringe Talent, a recruiting agency that specializes in building teams for animation, visual effects, production, and special venue. Before that she worked for companies that include Blue Sky Studios, IDT/Starz, DreamWorks Animation and ILM.
Hogarth has worked in visual effects for 30 years, 25 of which were in education. She was one of the first employees at Gnomon School of Visual effects and was instrumental in building it into the premiere institution for vfx career education. She has also lent her green thumb to the Visual Effects Society as a member of the Executive Committee, Board of Directors and many, many committees. Both women have spoken and taught at multiple colleges, universities and conferences, here and abroad.
