The third edition of Mouvo focus on the specifics of the interdisciplinary overlaps in which motion design originates. On the creative process that builds on the principle of cooperation above and beyond a genre-specific box. To think beyond. To try harder. To cross borders, break barriers and influence one another.

Discussion Panel: Interdisciplinary Overlaps
Motion design is in itself a flexible intersection of several different fields. By its very nature, it is a force that drives the boldest ones to try harder. To cross borders, break barriers and influence one another. To look for paths that have yet to be discovered. In the discussion panel, the speakers will try and consider how different people with varied approaches influence one another in joint projects. But also how finding way into other fields transforms our our work
