DescriptionWe will discuss Autism from the side of people with Autism, as well as how those seeking to better understand them can do so: speakers include filmmaker, Erica Milsom from Pixar who has made the short which won best of show at 2020's ACM SIGGRAPH Conference, which features an Autistic character, a recent grad from the Exceptional Minds School, a school where kids with Autism can go to learn VFX. And Julie Kogura from Lucasfilm, who's on the Spectrum.

We're seeking to present a more rounded discussion that includes many different voices as we discuss issues surrounding Autism in the VFX/Animation industries.
