The acclaimed festival Motion Plus Design touches down in North America for the first time at the historic Montalbán Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday February 23, 2019. After years of sold-out events in Paris and Tokyo, the Motion Plus Design team is thrilled to bring this unique festival to the U.S. On Oscar weekend, the international event will host a full day of presentations from 10:00am until 6:30pm with renowned designers Beeple, Jr.canest, Kyle Cooper, Karin Fong, Joyce N. Ho, Andrew Kramer, Marti Romances and Min Shi. Doors open at 9:00am. Tickets are available for $75 (general admission) and only $25 for students.

“On the weekend of the Academy Awards, Motion Plus Design will celebrate eight of the world’s top motion designers,” enthuses Founder and Festival Director Kook Ewo. “Film title sequences are an essential part of feature films and yet their creators are unsung. While the Emmys recognize Outstanding Main Title Design for television, unfortunately, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has yet to introduce an Oscar for Best Film Titles.”
Motion Plus Design Los Angeles speakers will share the secrets behind their latest creations, such as the Emmy Award-winning title sequence Counterpart from Karin Fong or the UI graphics of Avengers: Infinity War from Marti Romances. Several speakers will debut never-before-seen design work. See full speaker bios below.

A new generation of designers, celebrated by Motion Plus Design, are building on the work of the late, great pioneers of film title and motion design such as Saul Bass (North by Northwest, Psycho, Anatomy of a Murder, Casino), Maurice Binder (14 James Bond films starting with Dr. No, as well as The Grass Is Greener, Charade) and Pablo Ferro (Dr. Strangelove, The Thomas Crown Affair, Bullitt). Ferro recently passed away, at age 83, in November 2018.
“Design conferences and events often price out students and young professionals,” said Festival Curator and Producer Ronan Guitton. “When we created the first and only festival dedicated entirely to motion design, we wanted to make it accessible to the very people who could benefit from this shared knowledge the most.”
