Our mission

the motion.tv community: designed for creatives, by creatives

To explore innovative ideas, to seek out creative minds and new inspirations, to boldly go where no creative has gone before!

Now in it’s 9th year, motion is one of North America’s leading innovative and uniquely intimate events for creatives. Influential talent working in the motion picture and broadcast industries take the stage to share unique concepts and innovative ideas in 18-minute TED talk style presentations designed to revitalize the creative muse and // feed your creative brain //.

From Thursday night until late Sunday evening, treat yourself to thought-provoking ideas, extraordinary conversations, innovative business concepts, and a fresh perspective on creativity – all set in Santa Fe – a city rich in creativity, art and culture.

An opportunity to be inspired
a place to rejuvenate

Located 7200 feet above sea level at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, you’ll enjoy the same blue skies and crystalline quality of light that inspired the 20th Century American painter, Georgia O’Keeffe.

This three+ day conference brings together motion designers, filmmakers, animators, VFX artists, writers, directors, editors, composers, graphic designers, storytellers – people who strive to be on the forefront of innovation. motion delivers by drawing on our talented community to inspire creativity and transformation.

Trust us. The creative energy and inspiration you’ll experience after spending three+ days in the company of creatives, will be more invigorating than anything you’ve ever experienced. And because attendance is limited, it’s easy to make connections with motion speakers – some of the top creative thinkers in the industry.

Our Speakers

// Feed Your Creative Brain //
Dinner is Served!

The Menu

We pride ourselves in working with our speakers to deliver talks that truly // feed the creative brain //. Each motion speaker starts the process by coming up with two or three concepts they are passionate about – then narrow those down to the one that fuels them the most. That’s when it gets added to this year’s menu. Quality takes time. Believe us – the wait is worth it!

In the meantime, if you’d like to get an idea of what to expect, meet me at Starbucks and I’ll buy you a coffee – I’d love to tell you more! Contact me to schedule a time.

Santa Fe

The City Different

Santa Fe has been designated as a UNESCO Creative City – One of the world’s major art centers. It’s a place where artists are equally at home working with the traditions of their ancestors as they are experimenting with contemporary techniques. And it’s not just visual artists who find their muse in Santa Fe. Musicians, dancers, actors, writers and chefs tap into endless ways to express their creativity – contributing to a rich blend of artistic activity.

2015 marks motion‘s first year as a creative retreat. We believe there’s no better place to celebrate creativity as we ring in this new era than “the city different“.

Located 7200 feet above sea level at the foot of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, you’ll enjoy the same blue skies and crystalline quality of light that inspired the 20th Century American painter, Georgia O’Keeffe. With highs in the upper 70s and low 80s, it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy this unique retreat atmosphere. Be sure to take a look at our FAQs when making travel plans!

WHY MOTION?

Many industry events are produced by professional ‘event-producers’ – companies whose primary goal is to make money. motion, on the other hand, is fueled by passion. Motion designers Elaine & Becky, gave birth to motion 9 years ago with the intent of creating a unique experience for our community.

From artists’ talks and intriguing interviews, to real-world project breakdowns and interactive audience discussions, motion approaches creativity like none other. Exciting one-of-a-kind events like FACEOFF: The After Effects Challenge – where three artists go face-to-face to design a motion graphics project live on stage in just 60 minutes, to The Exquisite Corpse Project led by TV Land Creative Director Michael Waldron – prove that individual and collective creativity has no bounds.

Through our partnership with Parallel Studios, motion attendees are invited to experience CURRENTS – The International New Media Festival each evening. Over 5000 visitors enjoy world-class video and interactive installations, animation, art apps, full dome and multimedia performances at the festival each year.

Be sure to check out the video – it’s a great way to get an idea of what you can expect at motion 2015. Then, get ready to relax and rejuvenate – while you // feed your creative brain //.

motion is designed for creatives, by creatives!
