Animation and Motion Graphics Conference
I'm always on the lookout for events that facilitate the cross-pollination of motion graphics disciplines (typically characterized in terms of tools by After Effects and Flash).
The Best in the Southwest conference in Albuquerque this Oct. is looking like it could an excellent springboard for exchanging ideas, learning about new tools, meeting new people, and being a source of inspiration. As a disclaimer, I haven't been to this conference before, so I can't attest to the quality of the sessions, but after perusing the speaker line-up looks like an all-star group of presenters. If you are interested in presenting, its not too late. The deadline for speaking submissions is June 30th.
As an added bonus, the conference takes place during the Albuquerque balloon festival which is on my list of events to see before I get too old to travel!
