    Rory Gordon

    Senior Colorist at Arsenal FX

    "The most helpful thing from SMPTE has been the online Imaging Science Fundamentals class, which is great for those with backgrounds that are more creative, less hard-core. I appreciate how SMPTE's Education offerings are focused on the resources people actually want."

    Eric Gsell

    "It is very easy to feel like you belong in this group of very smart people. That was part of the attraction to me, to be able to interact with and understand and learn from all these really smart people that were building and designing the standards and the equipment that I was working with. But there's also a fellowship component, the membership and education components."

    Kylee Pena
