We are very excited to announce our 2017 keynote speaker, who happens to be a founding member of the community: Brian Maffitt!

Brian Maffitt is still trying to figure out what to do when he grows up. Meanwhile he has founded a few companies, designed software that was acquired by Adobe and rolled into After Effects, acted on Broadway, taught countless people how to use creative software, produced a few thousand hours of video content, and been an intermittently-famous art photographer. His next project will probably involve designing more software, or something with VR, or perhaps eating ice cream and playing video games.

“Brian taught me After Effects!” exclaimed Carey Dissmore, IMUG Founder “ I am tremendously excited to welcome Brian Maffitt to present our keynote this year. For decades he has been a presence on our Media-Motion list communities, managing to offer everything from sage advice to a well-timed bit of wit and whimsy. He is an inspiration to us all”

For those of you that have been to more than a few MMBs you may have seen one of Brian previous MMB Keynotes. Have a look below at his 2011 MMB presentation. This year promises to be an entertaining talk on... well actually we don't know. Brian won't tell us, but will be a surprise and delight for everyone attending.


2017 is the 20th anniversary of the MediaMotion Events at NAB. The MMB is unique in the NAB landscape - a non-profit event for users, by users and entirely volunteer created and run.

We hope to see you in 2017 for a wonderful night!
