  1. MGFest Philadelphia 2010 has added a new workshop to it's schedule, "Crash Course in Apple Motion 3D." This hands on workshop provides a 1 day crash course in the fundamentals of Apple Motion. It is designed to bring anyone up to speed on the basic interface, behaviors, compositing, text, keyframes, workflow back and forth from Final Cut Pro and strong foundations in utilizing 3D. Facilitated by Jeff Greenberg, Future Media Concepts To the great annoyance of his parents, Jeff left a pre-med program to pursue a degree in film/communications. Since then, he's struggled to explain to them what he does. He's the Principal Instructor for Future Media Concepts where he teaches technology internationally with solutions from Adobe, Apple and Avid. Along the way, he's been well received as a seminar speaker, works as a post production specialist and is responsible for the Editors Retreat - a yearly exotic getaway by editors, for editors. Occasionally he has written articles, tech edited books, and been recorded teaching on DVDs from Vasst.com and Lynda.com. Visit Jeff at his website JeffGreenberg.com.

  6. Hey yo, I am one of the co-directors of the festival & I have to say I never quite seen an event come together like this one has. It's been almost magical. A month ago we were talking about having one screening, but it keeps expanding. There has been such an outpouring support and excitement that our expectations have been blown at every turn. The major parties are going to be thur-sat nights, may 15-17. The summit on sat is also going to be very cool, in terms of education/industry. Details on both will be published this coming week. ++ i would not call it "spam", but if you want updates, the mailing list always gets the advanced scoop + special offers for the auction ;-) http://mgfest.com/contact.php

  13. Motion Graphics Festival 2008 Intro Video Festival Website: http://mgfest.com/ Intro Video Case Study with Production Photos: http://mgfest.com/08/intro.php Lift Motion Design and Creative Chaos created this astounding intro video for the Moton Graphics Festival 2008. The production process heavily integrated the motion with the sound design by The Great Mundane. The inspiration came from the integration of several creative practices at this year's festival, which focuses on motion design, sound design and motion programming. Production, costuming, and makeup were done at Foundation Post and the piece was edited by Matthew Glover. Adobe After Effects was used for almost all the animating and compositing. The final edit was done in Final Cut Pro and the audio composition was created in Ableton Live. The final piece will play before a live audience at each of the 4 motion graphics screenings at the festival: Stash's Commercial Art screening, Lumen Eclipse's Video Art screening, the Art in Motion screening, and the Conscious Motion screening. "It was wonderful to have the opportunity to collaborate with other motivated and talented artists. I really do not think this project would have been possible with out each individuals passion and dedication to do what they love. And that love is responsible for the drive to follow through on the never ending quest for perfection to create a positive final product." from Jeffrey Acciaioli (The Great Mundane, Composer/Sound Designer)
