motion: Animation & Motion Graphics and VFX Festival

If you are into Flash animation, motion graphics, or broadcast design, you won’t want to miss out on the 2007 motion conference. The conference takes place at the Albuquerque Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa from October 7-13, 2007.


motion brings Flash animators, motion graphic artists, and broadcast designers together for a full week of non-stop animation, visual effects, motion graphics, and inspiration. Seven great days to learn, exchange ideas, further professional skills, and be inspired!

The conference starts off with a bang with our opening keynote show – a blend of excitement, information and our annual Best in the SW: Flash Animation & Motion Graphics Awards. The ceremony celebrates the Best of Flash animation, broadcast design and motion graphics.

I admit – I have a special interest in this particular conference…I am co-producing it! But even if I weren’t — this would definitely be a conference that I would want to attend!

In fact, that is how I came up with the idea for the conference. I attend a fair amount of conferences, and have never found one that seemed like a ‘perfect fit’. A conference that focused on the art of flash animation, motion graphics, and broadcast design – while still provide creation techniques. So I thought – why not produce it!

I talked to Becky Padilla about the idea, and shortly after, we started the gears in motion. We took a hard look at what would make this conference interesting from both the design side and the ‘creative tools’ side. As we say in our marketing material, “At motion you will learn more than just tips, tricks and techniques. You will learn about the art of animation, vfx and motion graphics – the concepts, the design, and finally the execution.” We believe we have come up with the perfect balance.

1-day of pre-conference workshops – 3-days filled with sessions by leading animators, broadcast designers, special effects and motion graphic artists – 2-days of intensive hands-on training. Whether you join us for all or part – there’s something for everyone at this year’s Best in the SW.
