We welcome all members of the motion graphics community to join us on Sunday, March 25th from noon to 2pm at Junior High in Hollywood to celebrate mograph's leading ladies with some serious shop talk. We have a knock-out panel of accomplished female artists and directors who will be answering questions submitted by our members (more on that later!).
