SF Content Creators is a user group that centers around Motion Graphics, Production, Post Production, Animation, VR, UX, and Design. We'd like our group to do the following:

  • Create a community of like-minded creatives who are keen to share resources, knowledge, techniques, and professional practice.
  • Highlight great work from Bay Area practioners. Speaker events will feature talks, presentations, and project breakdowns. Showing off is great, but we think Q and A is even better!
  • Provide a conduit for students, hobbyist, or secondary users to take their skills to the next level or begin professional practice.
  • To encourage cross pollination and multi-disciplinary creatives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our industry is changing, and we all should change with it.
  • To socialize, eat some pizza, drink a few cold ones, and laugh about memes, vids, deadlines, tech bros, and all the rest of it!
