You just hosted the best educational event I’ve ever attended – including at the big festivals like Sundance and SXSW – so congrats to both of you for capturing a bit of magic in a bottle.
MIM is a blast for both the attendees as well as the speakers. You get to spend several days with fellow filmmakers and speakers to discuss the latest trends, philosophies, and techniques both in formal and informal settings. I look forward to meeting the attendees as well as fellow instructors every year that fly in from around the world. The workshop is also extremely well managed and efficient resulting in one of the best weeks of learning you’ll get anywhere that I can recommend without reservation.
On your own, you can learn a tremendous amount of information and experience, however, there comes a point where you need to take your career seriously and take action to achieve the next level. Masters In Motion is the catalyst to get you there.
Masters in Motion has built an incredible reputation in just two years as being the essential must do event for any filmmaker. The combination of amazing speakers, practicals and networking is second to none. If I wasn’t a speaker I would be an attendee. MIM is Essential!
You guys really do pour your heart and soul into this event and it really shows.
"10 Things I Learned at Masters in Motion" on FilmmakerMagazine.com
People always ask where I learned my lighting techniques, answers are always the same, at Masters in Motion.
If someone asked me, ‘What was the most inspiring thing for you last year ?’ I wouldn’t need a second to come up with the answer. The most inspiring thing for me last year was attending Masters In Motion. Which is the reason I signed up for 2013 on the first day of registration. Why was it so great you might ask?It is the people… it is always about the people. The people attending, the people teaching, the people organizing, it is all about the people and you will never meet a cooler group of people in the filmmaking community than at Masters In Motion. For me it is a considerably investment attending MIM. I live in Switzerland and this year I am bringing one of my employees as well, so with flights and hotels it is an investment that could have bought us an extra Canon C100 with sweets on top, so I put my money where my mouth is. A new camera doesn’t make you a better filmmaker, knowledge and experience do, and that is what MIM has brought me. Besides being spoiled with some of the best and most successful people in the industry as speakers, you will also meet likeminded filmmakers among the other attendees. Last year was my first MIM and I got so many great connections and friends. My best advise to you if you want to skyrocket your productions is to sign up today and let’s meet at MIM 2013.
I attended the 2012 MIM and was uniquely blown away. The amount of professional content presented by industry veterans was amazing. But what was truly special was how accessible these heavy hitters were. That access along with the sharing of knowledge and ideas with the other attendees, who themselves are professionals aspiring to take their filmmaking and marketing tools to new levels, was simply magical. The things I learned and the good folks I met continue to serve me all year long; damn good stuff! I highly recommend taking the time to attend this event. I will see you there again in 2013.

Whether you’re there for networking, talking shop, or just want to soak up the knowledge from a diverse group of master craftspeople in the industry, MIM delivers above and beyond. It feels like a little secret that not everyone knows about, so it’s like an exclusive club if you’ve had a chance to go.
Whenever people ask me about training or events to go to, I always tell them Masters in Motion is absolutely the best film making event of the year.
