He then became an organizer for The Animation Guild [Local 839] in charge of the animation and visual effects sectors. He recruits new members, leads organizing drives, and educates existing members on the value of unionization. In this conversation, Kaplan discusses the distinctive challenge of organizing VFX workers.
