New York in Motion explodes out of the screen and takes you on a breathtaking unmissable tour through the motion graphics industry. It’s energy and magic is equalled only by that of the city it embraces. It is a ‘must see’ film.

Director Elliott lights up the screen with this cleverly curated cavalcade of the best work coming out of the ‘capital of motion graphics’. He also takes us under the skin of this exploding medium by talking to the vibrant designer/entrepreneurs carrying the creative torch, that is pushing the industry forward. Final quote from the film sums it all up, “My clients say ‘Wow me’…. and you can”.

Today over 100 SVA students study motion graphics. … Given the enormous rise and success of this industry, coupled with SVA’s legacy of graduates who have become players in this field, “New York in Motion” gives New York City its rightful place as the city of origin of this creative medium that has impacted profoundly on our culture.

–Richard Wilde, Chair of the Advertising/Graphic Design Department, School of Visual Arts

………………………………………….

The development of “Motion Graphics” is an interesting story to follow since it connects to core human concepts of communication and art and expression. And it’s also very much influenced by technology, which has changed all our lives tremendously over the last decades. Looking at how the term has changed reveals a lot of how we have changed. … And with “we” I mean not just the industry, but “we” as a community and a culture on a big scale, and also “we” as individuals on a very intimate scale.

The very fascinating part for us was to witness how the people we interviewed are not just pressed into an uniform mold that defines the industry, but are active and passionate about writing and re-writing this definition today. What they do have in common is their drive and creativity and excitement that is very much contagious and shines throughout the film.

–Graham Elliott, Director
