(Los Angeles, California--September 29, 2009) At this year's motion09 held October 11-14, 2009, Zoic Studios' Executive Creative Director/VFX Supervisor Andrew Orloff will present "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants."
An entertaining examination of present-day creative and past inspiration, "Giants" is part of a weekend-long event that unites professionals and students from the design and effects community.
Emmy-nominated for his work on JJ Abrams "Fringe" (for which he also earned a 2009 VES award), "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Jericho", Andrew Orloff's television credits also include HBO's "True Blood," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," and the highly anticipated new series "V".
Andrew established Zoic's stage and has directed hundreds of motion control shots and other specialty sequences. He also launched the company's successful animation division and contributed to such high-end projects as the design and creation of a 360-degree experience for EA, the innovative Fox Bot campaign for Fox Sports and the Sprint "Heroes: Destiny" web series.
Creatives are fueled by a mysterious force that inspires great ideas, fresh new ways of seeing the world, and the courage to do things differently. All too often, this expressive force is zapped by the demands of the industry. Revitalizing these creative talents provides a renewed sense of being and the spark to stimulate the imagination. motion09 is an event that inspires creativity. Once a year, animators, motion graphic artists, title designers, VFX artists and broadcast designers come together to share their skills, work, and professional insights at this unique summit. Joined by 360 industry professionals and students, four days are spent together in a collaborative environment designed for experiencing and participating in the creative process.
