Pause Fest is back this year with an impressive line-up of talks, panel discussions, workshops, and exclusive Pause Fest experiences over three days (8-10 Feb) that will highlight content and experiences that simply cannot be Googled.
More than 45 luminaries from the creative, business and tech worlds will take to the stage (Deakins Edge at Fed Square) to share their experiences and insight in exclusive keynotes.
Some highlights for us animators will be talks from world renowned companies with the likes of Pixar, Lucasfilm and The Mill to name just a few.
Broken up into 3 days (Day 1: Creative, Day 2: Tech, Day 3:Business) there’s something for everyone but if budget is tight there are a number of free events on offer including a Pausefest motion response night hosted by Melbourne Motion, where there will be live and pre recorded Pause Fest breakdowns from Nord Collective, Locked + Loading, Seth Molson, Substance, the Sequence Group & Xiaolin Zeng.
Creating a space for free thinkers to converge, engage and find shared purpose, Pause is an environment which cultivates true collaboration. It’s this ethos of empowerment that has seen Pause’s influence extend beyond its Melbourne roots to become the leading conference and festival of its kind for the entire Asia Pacific region.
‘Pause is where you can find your tribe of like-minded people. People who want to challenge the everyday and build better futures. People who don’t want to accept the status quo’ – Fiona Slocum, Experience Designer.
