Top Speakers Present at Final motion un-conference in Santa Fe
Elaine Montoya, co-producer of motion announced today that the final un-conference will take place June 5-8 in Santa Fe, NM.
“This June, twelve years of talks, interviews, experiences and interactions designed to feed your creative brain…all come to an end,” said Montoya. “And for our final episode we have our best line-up ever including Kyle Cooper (prologue), Erin Sarofsky (Sarofsky), Garson Yu (yU+co), Jayse Hansen (jayse.tv), Elliott Chaffer (Trollbäck+Company), Christopher Webb (FX WRX), Brandon Oldenburg (Flight School Studio), Vince Kadlubek (Meow Wolf), Brian Bowman (Potion), and John LePore (Perception).
Title Design is the main focus of the motion finale…and we’re blessed to have many of the greats coming to share their insight!”
In addition to talks from Title Design legends, motion includes it’s fan favorite segment on FUI – Fantasy User Interfaces, or Fictional User Interfaces.
“FUI has always held a special place at motion. Co-producer Becky Padilla and I sincerely thank Jayse Hansen and Mark Coleran for their “fui*tastic” support for our FUI segments year after year. And he’s back! Jayse returns for the final chapter,” said Montoya.
Trollbäck+Company and FX WRX collaborate to honor motion
To celebrate the final episode, Trollbäck+Company’s executive creative director Elliott Chaffer has teamed up with in-camera FX master Christopher Webb to create a special piece to mark the occasion.
“When Elliott contacted us to ask if he could spearhead the creation of a special piece for our final chapter, we were ecstatic!” said Montoya. “I’ve only seen bits and pieces of what’s happening behind the scenes, and already know this is going to be super amazing! I couldn’t be more grateful!”

Trollbäck wasn’t alone in their enthusiasm to do something special for the motion finale. Potion’s Creative Director Brian Bowman is a long time motion fan – and a regular presenter. As a creator of multimedia, interactive experiences, and live multimedia performances, he developed the concept for the High Desert project – a unique 3D cinematic and musical collaboration along with Betsy Jones (UNTTLD), Greg Walters (Tiny Victories), Derek Muro (Violet Sands), Nick MacDonald (music) and Jeremy Hurewitz (Rootless) to debut at the motion finale celebration at Meow Wolf.
