HAS A STORY TO TELL
You’ve seen their work. But have you ever heard their stories? Captivating stories. Stories that inspire. Stories that make you look at your art in a different light. These are the stories you’ll hear at motion.
Imagination – it’s the theme of motion 2015. Designer/Director Karin Fong (Imaginary Forces founding member | Wonderland Sound & Vision partner) takes us back to an earlier time as she tells her story, Imagination: Brought to You by the Letter ‘i’. And then there’s Designer/Director Greg Herman. You’ve seen his VFX work in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man. In his story, Circles, he reveals what fuels his creativity.
Their stories go beyond imagination. Many of you know Mark Coleran for his visionary FUI design for movies like The Bourne Ultimatum or Mission Impossible 3. But have you heard the stories from deep inside his brain? You’ll be fascinated as he shares The Origin of Ideas.
And you’ll see plenty of project breakdowns. Like the cutting-edge cinematics Creative Director Paul Mitchell (The Mill | Mill+) produced for Call of Duty: Ghosts. Or this year’s incredible show open created by Creative Director Guilherme Marcondes and his partners at the internationally acclaimed Brazilian design studio LOBO – the motion 2015 featured studio.
Then there’s the movies. Thursday evening you’re invited to a special showing of Harmontown at the Violet Crown Cinema – a swanky new addition to the hip Santa Fe Railyard district. Afterwards, Director Neil Berkeley shares the stories behind the film. A Thousand Rooms – a unique collaboration between Brian Bowman (Trollbäck+Company) and Greg Walters, lead singer of the New York synth-pop band Tiny Victories – premieres at motion 2015. And finally, the Santa Fe premiere of Last Hit – a dramatic short film written, directed, and edited by Gregory Herman. Hear the stories behind each film and explore techniques used in making them.
This three+ day conference brings together motion designers, filmmakers, animators, VFX artists, writers, directors, editors, composers, graphic designers, musicians, new media artists, storytellers – people who strive to be on the forefront of innovation.
Trust us. The creative energy and inspiration you’ll experience after spending three+ days engaged in the company of creatives, will be more invigorating than anything you’ve ever experienced.
