Now in it’s 8th year, motion returns to ABQ – The Land of Enchantment’s largest city. motion is one of North America’s leading innovative and uniquely intimate events – bringing together an ever expanding scope of the brightest and most creative minds for an annual celebration of who we are…creatives. motion takes you on a mind-bending three day ride – what we refer to as the TED talks of our industry. Filmed in front of a live studio audience filled with directors, creative directors, principals and partners, motion designers, vfx artists, writers, animators, graphic designers, composers and sound designers – each speaker is on stage for 18 creative minutes sharing their unique perspective on subjects they’re passionate about. Innovative ideas that revitalize the creative muse. Talks that // feed the creative brain //.
motion is all about creativity and the moving image: motion pictures, vfx, motion graphics, and animation. From concept and storytelling, to previz and breakdowns – motion approaches creativity like none other. For those who thrive on creative conversation, we provide plenty of opportunities through extended lunch breaks and evening meetups at local restaurants and bars. By limiting the number of motion audience members we are able to provide a unique experience, uniting speakers and audience members who wish to take the conversation to the next level. Year after year, motion attendees cite the intimacy of the event as one of the most valuable aspects of being at motion.
And for directors, creative directors, principals and partners we offer the unheard of: the opportunity to meet your competition on neutral turf. Through a variety of exclusive opportunities, the competition comes together and gets to know each other as fellow creatives: sharing ideas, business strategies and friendships that last long beyond motion.
As many who’ve attended motion in the past have said, you have to experience motion to ‘get it’. Creatives see the world differently. And that’s a good thing. Our views, ideas, the way we run our businesses – even how we create our art – is always in motion. We are the leaders and visionaries of a new paradigm, blazing trails and opening doors to an era where innovation and creativity are valued.
Throughout the year, we curate an amazing cast of speakers and choreograph talks and events that are creatively intertwined to feed the creative brain. From talks to previz breakdowns, turbo classes to networking events – our goal is to ensure that each year we continue to provide a uniquely creative experience in an intimate and beautiful setting. In May, we will be announcing the motion creative visionaries. Past speakers include Imaginary Forces Creative Director Karin Fong, Patrick Hanenberger Production Designer at DreamWorks Animation, Pioneering FUI Designer Mark Coleran, Zoic Studios Founder + VFX Supervisor Andrew Orloff, Legendary Disney Animator Dan Haskett, TV Land Creative Director Michael Waldron, Film Director Mark Tapio Kines, Actor Steven Michael Quesada from Breaking Bad, Picture Mill Creative Director William Lebeda, Greg Gunn Director at Blind, creatives from Sony Picture Imageworks, Psyop, yU+co among many others.
motion takes place in the city’s most iconic venue – the historic KiMo Theatre in downtown ABQ. ABQ features fantastic dining, eclectic shops and galleries in the Nob Hill District as well as an abundance of culture in its myriad of galleries, museums and historic squares including Old Town. At the foothills of the Sandia mountains on the east side of ABQ, sits the Sandia Peak Tramway – North America’s longest aerial tram, transporting you above deep canyons and breathtaking terrain. ABQ is an ultra friendly, unique and quirky, laid-back city with a population just under a million – the perfect location to meet up with like-minded creatives from all over the world each year at motion.
