The inspirational Wine After Coffee asked us to create the opening titles to Blend Fest 2017. The kicker…include the names of all 400 conference attendees. As well as assisting with story animation, I was tasked with creating and executing the title cards themselves, incorporating both speakers and guests. All of them. The ever changing list of names, right up until the week before, proved an additional challenge but in the end my spreadsheets and color coding won the battle. If you were there, I probably cursed your name. Yes, you.
