Move Summit, Scotland’s Animation Gathering, was conceived in 2016 as a collaboration between Edinburgh based animation studios Interference Pattern and Stampede.
Scotland has a thriving animation scene, spanning a vast array of creative areas like film, television, advertising, games, design, architecture, theatre and visual arts. But one challenge faced by the industry is to recognise how practitioners from these many different areas share a deep passion for the craft of animation.
The vision of Move Summit is to facilitate a flagship conference for the Scottish animation sector, which showcases the best work from throughout the industry, and offers a place for professionals to gather and get inspired.
The Evolution of Move
The first Move Summit took place in 2017. A one day event, the conference offered high quality presentations and workshops featuring talent from Scotland and the rest of the UK, topped off with speakers from VFX studio MPC.
Move Summit 2018 grew to become a two day event, spread over two venues. With a higher profile than before, the 2018 conference hosted international speakers, as well as legendary UK studio Aardman.
From simple beginnings, the conference has evolved into a thriving gathering place for our grassroots community. Participation from the international animation industry, and partnerships with Scottish studios, have enabled growth and continued ambition. Move Summit is focussed on developing stronger commercial connections throughout Scotland, the UK and internationally.
