What is the format of the workshop?
Monday and Wednesday will be lecture based at the Alamo Drafthouse. We have chosen dynamic speakers to keep it entertaining as well as educational while also allowing time for Q & A. Tuesday we will have 3 breakout sessions.
What can I expect to learn?
The goal of this workshop is to go beyond specific cameras and delve into more advanced filmmaking topics such as pre production, lighting, color, etc.
Who should attend the workshop?
Masters In Motion is geared towards filmmakers who are ready to take the next step and elevate their productions. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned veteran, our line up will have something for everyone. Regardless of whether you’re a documentary, commercial, wedding filmmaker, or even if you’re just doing it out of love, you will leave armed with the knowledge you need to progress.
We have 100 seats available. First come, first serve.
How many people will attend MIM?
Yes, absolutely. We’ve sold out every event thus far and are expecting to sell out significantly faster this year since our notification list for this years event is significantly longer than previous. Keep in mind that seats are available as first come, first serve and we are not able to hold any seats. The only way to reserve your spot is by signing up through the registration link.

When will the speakers be announced?
When will the full event schedule be available?

We strongly suggest attendees sign up for Twitter as it’s a great way to stay connected before, during, and after the event. If you are new to Twitter send a tweet to @shooteditlearn.
Is there anything I need to do Before MIM?
You can bring your camera and a laptop although it’s not required. The most important thing to have is something to take notes with and business cards. One of the best parts of these workshops is the tremendous networking opportunities.
What should I bring with me?
The Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS) is conveniently located less than 10 miles away from the Omni Hotel. You can either jump in a cab for about $20 or take the Super Shuttle for about $13 each way.
What airport should I fly in to?
All the organizers, speakers, staff and the majority of the attendees will be staying at the Omni Hotel Downtown at 700 San Jacinto Boulevard Austin, Texas. The Omni is a short 2 block walk from the Alamo Drafthouse. We have a group rate of $165 per night at the Omni Hotel which is located just steps from all the locations for this year’s event. We only have a limited amount of rooms set aside and they go fast so make sure to book one soon. We will announce instructions on how to book with our group rate shortly.
Where is everyone staying during the event?
We recommend Sunday! We will have an opening reception Sunday at 6:30pm at the Omni Hotel where you’ll be able to pick up your name badge, swag bag and mingle with like minded folks and presenters.
When should I arrive in Austin?
We recommend Thursday! We will have a closing party Wednesday at 8:30pm so why miss the fun. In order to be eligible for our giveaways Wednesday night at 10pm you will have to be present.
When should I leave Austin?
Not at all!
I'm local. Do I have to stay at the Omni Hotel?
Hotel prices vary greatly but the rate of $165 per night at the Omni is the best we’ve seen in our 8 years of taking over Austin in December for Masters In Motion.
How much are hotels in Austin?
The Alamo Drafthouse is located at 320 East 6th Street Austin, TX 78701. This is just a short 2 block walk from the Omni Hotel.
Where is the Alamo Drafthouse located?
No. If you chose to drive into the city, you are responsible for your own parking.
Will parking be provided for the event?
No. We will take breaks throughout the day so everyone can grab some lunch on their own or network with others during that time or order from the comfort of your seat at the Alamo. The Alamo has amazing food (and milkshakes).
Is lunch included in the workshop fee?
Yes! The rate gives you access to all the presentations.
Do I get to hear all the speakers?
Is there a discount price if I can only attend certain days?
We have a very limited number of seats and therefore can not offer discounts for attending portions of the day/event.
Can I get a discount for being a student, military, awesome, etc.?
We have already lowered the ticket price as much as possible to ensure everyone who wants to attend can so no further discounts are available.
We have a very amazing and dedicated group of staff that have supported us for many years. If for any reason one of them can’t join us, we may add a new staff member. We only accept staff that have attended one of our events before. If you are interested (and eligible) feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I volunteer during the event to get free admission?
If I don’t sign up for the workshop can I still go to the night time activities / closing party / etc.?
No. The events we’ve setup for workshop attendees are for workshop attendees only.
Will you be recording the presentations and posting them online?
No. We will not be filming any of the presentations and posting them online.
