Featured Speakers Include:

  • Alex Parker is a freelance Motion Designer and Character Animator, known mostly for her mid-century design aesthetic and relentless use of the color pink. Having taken home a Rookies Excellence award and an AICP Shortlist Award, Alex is flying into the freelance world to splash some color on it and to tell stories her way: one frame at a time. Her motto is pretty simple: ‘Bright colors. Black coffee.’
  • EJ Hassenfratz is a multi-Emmy winning freelance motion design artist based out of Denver, CO. His love for art started back in his youth while playing Mario Paint on SNES and constantly drawing anime. Self-taught in animation and 3D design, EJ started Eyedesyn as a way to give back to the creative community and create tutorials that were accessible to anyone of any level of experience. 
  • Emiliano Topete was born and raised in Mexico City and studied film school in Cuba. He founded Polygoon in 2013, and ever since he has been developing 3D animated projects for both local and international platforms. Emiliano is an animation teacher and Cinema 4D consultant. 
  • Oliver Lueiza is an artist with a professional degree in design and 11 years of experience as a 3D generalist. He specializes in Cinema 4D and is a Cinema 4D Master Trainer. He currently works as a Creative Director at Believe Studio.
