Half Rez 7 is September 12 at Chop Shop

We’ve been working hard to bring you the best Half Rez ever, and we’re really excited to share more details about the big event.

The first announcement is that we’re moving to Chop Shop, a phenomenal venue in the heart of Wicker Park. It’s a perfect fit for our combination of great talks and catching up with the Chicago motion graphics community. And for folks traveling to Half Rez from out of town, we’ve partnered with The Robey hotel, in the landmark Northwest Tower right across the street. To get the best rate, use the promo code CHOPSHOP when you book your room.

This year’s lineup is also shaping up to be packed with great people doing amazing work. So far, we’ve announced Andrew Kramer of Video Copilot, and Donnie Bauer, creative director at The Mill in Chicago. That’s not all, so stay tuned for more announcements.

Tickets for Half Rez 7 will be available this Monday July 12 at noon Chicago time. To pick up yours, visit the new Half Rez site, and mash that “Ticket please” button! We can’t wait to see you in September!
