The IMUG began with its first NAB events in 1998, with the goal of fostering face-to-face interactions amongst the members of our online community. While our community's activity is now spread throughout social media, forums and the blogosphere, The media-motion.tv mailing lists remain the anchor of this community. Every day, our 3000+ members interact on subjects of video production, post production, motion graphics, compression and sound business strategy. Always held on NAB Monday, the MediaMotion Ball is now in it's 16th year. The MediaMotion Ball has grown in both size and reach and is one of the premier user events in the NAB landscape. Everyone involved with the MMB is a volunteer and it is run as a not-for-profit event.
Anyone who works in the fields of production, post production or motion graphics design is welcome!
