CoMotion 2011 (In Partnership with Inspire)
Saturday, May 21, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM (EDT)
CoMotion is created by students for students, but any attendee will find inspiration in our speakers and panel discussions. Students can participate and demonstrate their worth through these portfolio reviews, student showcase, and contest while gaining new insight from the panels. The most important aspect is to give students the opportunity to interact and portray themselves as creative professionals but CoMotion is open to all majors and walks of life. CoMotion serves to bring together students, professors, and industry talent in one environment.
CoMotion is a student symposium featuring motion graphics and sound design industry professionals and guest speakers.
The event will be taking place at Arnold Hall located at 1810 Bull St., Savannah, GA. Directions on the right of the page.
