MediaMotion Ball celebrates 21 years

An all-volunteer produced event, the MediaMotion Ball serves as the unofficial industry kickoff and reunion event for the production, post production and motion graphics communities.

Celebrating its 21st year in this return, the MediaMotion Ball is hosted by the International Media User’s Group (IMUG), an all-volunteer community of video and design professionals.  First held in 1998 the MediaMotion Ball is now the premier event for post production, motion graphics, 3D and anyone in the production field attending NAB.

The MMB draws attendees from across the country and around the world. It is one of the longest-running events of its kind and proves to be a highlight of the radio, TV and production conference. Everyone is welcome at the MMB event. The organizers are proud of having attendees from many email groups, twitter groups and online forums. The IMUG and After Effects email lists, one of the oldest production and After Effects online communities, form the basis of the MediaMotion Ball. The Ball also has attendees who use FCP, Avid, Cinema4D, Resolve and Premiere Pro from around the world. The event is not a ‘Ball’ in the traditional sense – so no dancing or formal attire required. Everyone can come as they are!
