While there are many other CG groups and the Visual Effects Society has a group, I felt a group dedicated to the needs and interests of CG supervisors, CG producers, CG coordinators and
those providing services to the managers of the CG process and pipelines, would be useful. I looked at posts on the other sites and thought about this for a long time, because I didn't want to duplicate or compete. I believe that this group will be a great place for us to get to know, like and trust one another --and to help one another find solutions.
Discussing workplace issues with subordinates is usually a poor idea, unless you're consulting or mentoring. And there are some things you don't want to discuss with your boss. Hooking up with peers who understand the challenges you face and have similar problems --professional colleagues --is the best answer.
