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

    We start the day 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’s opening piece. It shouts, “let the celebration of creativity begin!” The motion experience has officially begun! Our first keynote speaker sets the stage. Next up, our in-depth interview is guaranteed to intrigue. Now it’s your turn to engage in an interactive discussion. Our second keynote will // feed your creative brain // and energize your artistic soul, followed by a captivating interview. Once again, it’s your turn to participate. The audience discussion that ensues after each keynote takes the conversation to a whole new level. 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. Once more it’s time to // feed the creative brain // with two more innovative talks, interviews and discussions wrapping up at 3:45pm. 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 project from start to finish – in just 60 minutes! Check out the latest from top companies in the industry. Grab a drink at the bar. Meet your colleagues. 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 continue to // feed your creative brain //. First course? Two keynote talks and interviews followed by cathartic discussion. 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 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 3:45pm. For those who want more, we invite you to stay on for our first Turbo Class: a short, high powered class designed to turbo charge your skills from 4-5:15pm. The subject? After Effects. Come back at 8:00pm for our special evening segment Creatives Who Like to Geek. Two special guests will inspire you to look at creativity through new eyes. It’s 9:45 and the day is done. The evening is yours to spend taking the conversation to the next level as you enjoy time with fellow attendees and motion speakers. Meetup details to be announced.

    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 two more keynotes and interviews providing essential ingredients for fueling creativity. After lunch, you’ll watch the final segment in our three part series: the motion project breakdown – complete with 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 talk and call it a wrap at 3:45pm. But remember: this is just the beginning. Your newly fueled creative life begins now. For those who would like to stay on, be sure to take advantage of our second motion Turbo Class from 4:00-5:15pm. And – if you don’t have a plane to catch – join us for the motion After Party from 9:30pm-12:30. It’s a great way to complete your motion experience!
