ASEPO is a grass roots organization created to serve the interests of all special effects and pyrotechnic operators, both union, non-union, in the United States and internationally.
ASEPO helps and represents not only the coordinator, but also those who do the work.
ASEPO is the only organization dedicated to looking out for your interests.
Without ASEPO's tireless efforts, many unwelcome regulations and standards would have been inflicted on the Special Effects Community and the entire Entertainment Community.
Welcome members and visitors to the newly rebuilt ASEPO website! In the spirit of bringing more value to our membership and the industry, as well as updating our accounting and member database, this website fulfills a host of needs.
If this is your first visit to the sight, you'll need to choose a password in order to access the members-only pages. Click the "Forgot Password" link located below the login button. Then enter your email address that you supplied to ASEPO when you applied or renewed, and follow the instructions. Afterward, you can log in and browse around.
Once in, click on the Members Only tab to reveal some useful pages, most notably the Document Library and Special Effects Links pages. These contain a wealth of helpful resources for special effects professionals, and will continue to grow. And feel free to suggest other links and documents you think would be appropriate to include.
Also notice the Member Discussions pages. They've been broken down into sub-categories for convenience, and more categories can be created. This is whatever you make it to be. You can post questions, tips and suggestions for other members to view and respond.
There is also a Member Directory built into the site. Out of respect for your privacy, your name and contact information are not included by default. To include your name, click on the View Profile link located above the Logout button and make any changes you'd like. You can update your choices anytime.
There is also a link to view all of the ASEPO newsletters ever published, which are filled with pertinent topics. This also will continue to grow as the next round of newsletters are now being created. "Oh sure", you say. "Promises promises". Well you're about to get a nice surprise.
So look around and make good use of it. Let us know if you have any suggestions to improve it further. It is, after all, your website.
