Vicki is an immigrant to the Hollywood film industry who rose to prominence in the VFX industry not only as an immigrant, but also as a woman in a male-dominated STEM field. During VR’s nascent years, Vicki contributed to the niche by developing a novel VR stereoscopic conversion workflow and was eventually selected to present this as a technical paper at SMPTE 2015. When she was younger, she was bullied by her peers for being different. Pursuing a career in the arts is also discouraged by the traditional Asian culture. This nominee should win on the premise for not only conquering her childhood traumas, but also for daring to go against the cultural grain of settling for a stable 9-to-5 job. Today, Vicki shares her insights as a speaker with almost 60,000 students on major educational platforms, an influence that is unfathomable for someone who was bullied for being shy. Vicki Lau
