I’ve had the pleasure of speaking at motion, and can recommend it as a friendly and focused conference. The scale is intimate, and they really put attention to getting an array of content that is both broad enough for general inspiration, but also deep enough to geek out about techniques and process. I’m still in touch with many people I’ve met there–it definitely fosters community.

Karin Fong

Hands down the best conference I’ve ever attended! The speakers are top notch. Not a lot of ego in the room: anybody and everybody talks to one another. It’s a rolling educational/war stories over dinner/have a beer and start all over the next day kinda show. I’ve made some really good friends with people whose work I’ve admired for years in motion title design.

    day 1

    The day starts at 9:30am with registration and coffee in the lobby of the KiMo Theatre – the motion 2014 venue. It’s your first opportunity to network with fellow creatives – people who quickly become part of your motion experience. From there, we take you behind the scenes for an insider’s look at the motion 2014 production process. Then, total darkness and silence encompasses the theatre. In an instant, a magical splash of creativity fills the room as the stage comes to life with this year’s Featured Artist show open. It shouts, “let the celebration of creativity begin!” ringing in the motion 2014 experience. Our first keynote speaker sets the stage for what’s to come. The in-depth interview that follows is guaranteed to intrigue. Next, it’s your turn to engage: time to participate in your first interactive discussion. After lunch you’re presented with the opportunity to get inside the mind of one of the industry’s top creatives as you watch part one in our three part series: the motion project breakdown featuring this year’s show open. We’ll take a 15 minute break and then once more it’s time to // feed your creative brain // with another innovative talk, interview and interactive discussion. After a short break, you’ll experience our first UNLEASHED project featuring work by one of the industry’s talented motion designers. At the close of the presentation, a representative from a leading industry software company will join the artist on stage and you’ll have the opportunity to ask both creative and technical questions before we wrap up for the day at 4:00pm. That evening, take the opportunity to network with fellow attendees and motion speakers over the dinner break and then join us from 9:00pm – midnight for the opening kickoff party!

    day 2

    On day two, your call time is 10am. By now, the motion experience is taking hold. As you ponder thoughts and conversation from the previous day, you’re starting to remember why you got into this business to begin with. Now you’re ready for seconds: heaping servings of concepts that // feed your creative brain //. First course? Another keynote talk and interview followed by cathartic discussion. Second course? Another UNLEASHED project featuring work by one of the industry’s talented motion designers. At the close of the presentation, a representative from a leading industry software company will join the artist on stage and you’ll have the opportunity to ask both creative and technical questions. After lunch, it’s time to watch part two of our three part series: the motion project breakdown. Our Featured Artist takes you deeper into their process in making this year’s show open. Up next is a motion audience favorite: CREATIVExFIT. Join Patrick Yonally, Creative Director at Impact Entertainment as he takes the stage to lead an interactive creative experience you’re sure to remember. Then after a short break it’s time for our final course: one more keynote talk, interview and discussion taking us to the close of the day at 4:00pm. We invite you to join us later in the evening from 7-9:30pm for our second annual FACEOFF: The After Effects Challenge with special guests Trish & Chris Meyer. Three teams each consisting of two pros take the stage and create a motion graphics project from start to finish – in just 60 minutes! Wander out to the lobby where you can check out the latest from top companies in the industry. Grab a drink at the bar. Meet your colleagues. Party! Want to be one of the FACEOFF teams? Be sure to fill out the online application.

    day 3

    Day three you wake up and your first thought is: I don’t want this experience to end! But you soon realize – this is just the beginning. It’s the start of a new way to look at life and experience creativity to the fullest. Time to make the most of the day! You’re back in your seat at 10:00am for another keynote and interview providing essential ingredients for fueling creativity. Then it’s time for our last UNLEASHED project featuring work by one of the industry’s talented motion designers. At the close of the presentation, a representative from a leading industry software company will join the artist on stage and you’ll have the opportunity to ask both creative and technical questions. After lunch, you’ll watch the final segment in our three part series: the motion project breakdown – including plenty of time to get all of your questions answered. Then, get ready to be delighted as we take a look at the results of yesterday’s interactive CREATIVExFIT session. Did we make that?! They say, all good things must come to an end – so we close with one final keynote talk as part of the motion closing experience and call it a wrap at 4:00pm. But remember: this is just the beginning. Your newly fueled creative life begins now. If you don’t have a plane to catch – join us for the motion After Party from 9:00pm-midnight. It’s the perfect finale for your motion experience!
