(Columbus, Ohio--October 7, 2013) Motion design/animation studio leftchannel, led by President/ Creative Director Alberto Scirocco, has been selected to create the show open for motion 2013 conference. It’s one of North America’s leading innovative and uniquely intimate events that brings together an ever-expanding scope of designers and animators for an annual celebration of the creative spirit. Motion 2013 will be held October 4-7 at the historicKiMo Theatre in Albuquerque, NM.
In addition to concepting and creating the animated show open, Scirocco will offer three presentations that will break down how the piece was created – providing a rare glimpse into the creative strategy, the challenges the team faced and the variety of techniques and technology used to overcome them.
”Over the past seven years motion has become an important industry event,” Scirocco says. “It brings like minded artists together to discuss their creative processes and encourages opportunities for the attendees to collaborate and learn from one another. Being asked to play a central role in it is an honor.”

We’re looking forward to seeing what they come up with and an engaging conversation about their process.”
