Debra Coleman is a real titan in VFX. She has worked in the industry for over 25 years, going from runner to compositor to artist manager to global head of compositing at Dneg. She is now an accredited career coach working with VFX companies and professionals through her company Open Frame Coaching.

In this conversation we talk about career development and the challenges that can come with new roles and responsibilities, what kind of leader you want to be, how to manage your time, perfectionism and much more. Debra shares a lot of useful advice and relatable anecdotes that I think a lot of people can benefit from. I for sure had a blast talking to her!
