There is no end to learning new things in post-production, and there will probably be so many new things that you should catch up on within the upcoming year, 2022, as well.
When it comes to following the newest trends, I have always found social platforms to be more efficient than reading long, informative content. I believe having a chance to observe closely is a huge advantage for learning.
So, here I am with a list of Instagram accounts of post-production artists that will help you keep up with new improvements, and will hopefully help you to get inspired!
1. Movie Effects VFX - @movie.effects.vfx 🔗
This is one of the most fun accounts about VFX on Instagram. Here you can learn a lot from movie scenes’ before and afters, Blender recreations, and quick tips that they share.
Let’s be honest, it is impossible to not be impressed when you see the scenes without any effects, and then see what they turned into! Seeing there is a lot that can be created with what you already got is quite inspiring.
2. Filmmakers World - @filmmakersworld 🔗
This account is also a great place to get familiar with the insides of the film industry. This account is not only sharing the before and afters of the scenes, but also very useful tips about how they were actually created, and the things you should be careful about.
Also, I suggest you follow closely the Q&A sessions in this account where you can ask your questions and learn a lot from professionals.

With similar aims to the previous suggestions, Visual Effects Community shares amazing before and after scenes but this time it’s not only the high budget projects but also how amazing things have been done with relatively low budgets as well.
