Juliana Mattar

Founder & CEO

Juliana has over 24 years’ experience in events production and management. She has produced corporate events globally for influencers and clients.

 

At school, Juliana dreamed of being an actress. Although she was not financially supported to pursue a degree in theatre studies, she pursued her passion for creating theatrical magic by going backstage instead. She honed her skills in stage management for theatre productions and along the way studied media and communications. 

She got her first job with an event and production agency while interning at a Broadway musical. After training as a video editor and producer, and then working as an events producer and show director, she started a video business for the agency. Six years later, in 2004, she left to start motion. 

 

Juliana has a strong interest in conceptual art and believes it can help people find a higher purpose.

“Since the onset of the pandemic, I’ve been busy developing motion’s digital capabilities to help organisations produce outstanding online experiences for their people and customers. I believe in harnessing technology’s power to influence and move people through a smart combination of collaborative communication tools, compelling content, creative programming – and a whole lot of spirit!” Juliana says.

Nahlah Alsree

Assistant Producer

Nahlah is a designer, visual artist, and art director. She moves through the creative world with an ethical point of view. Her aesthetics are refreshing and youthful with a purpose. She is always inspired by the people she designs for, and believes that design is not just about how something looks but also its intent and the action it sparks, be it physical, emotional or spiritual.

 

“This drove me towards my love for creating purposeful visual work. Each step taken bears significance in the experience of the audience. This purpose drove me further to become more strategic in my practice, particularly in branding and social media design where I can continue telling my visual story in today's progressive ways.”
