The mission of this group is to help each other grow as motion graphics artists and digital designers. Twice per month, we'll do real design and animation challenges and meet for two hours in cool places to have drinks, hang out and share the techniques we used with each other.
WHO I AM I'm a Brooklyn-based freelance art director, video producer and motion graphics artist who has worked in-house with brands like Meetup and WeWork. My favorite work is within After Effects, and I want to meet other people and continue to be better and better at what I love the most.
WHO SHOULD JOIN THIS GROUP All are welcome in this group, but you'll get the most out of it if you're a motion graphics artists with a basic knowledge of Adobe After Effects and want to grow creatively and meet other artists.
EVENTS • We'll meet for two hours every other week at a time and location that works best for everyone.
• Time and location of our first event is TBD. When you join, you'll receive a pop-up that asks for your preferred times and neighborhood, so I can get a sense of when and where works best for everyone.
• Events will be limited to ~10 people in order to deep dive into Ae files and learn and share as much as possible.
• Events will cost $2/person* via Venmo. This is for two reasons: (1) to help pay for the cost of the group, and (2) increase the likelihood that people show up. (*any/all money collected for events will exclusively be used for the betterment of the group)
Bring a project you're currently working on. Then we'll meet to share the techniques we used, have a few drinks, and hang out with other motion designers. Sound good?
