WHY PLAY?

BECAUSE WE WATCHED

After 12 successful years of bringing creatives together for motion, we stopped. Times were changing. The industry was changing. But most importantly – the way we up our creativity – has changed.

We'll let you in on a little secret. The last few years of motion, we were experimenting. What would happen if we bring a small group of creatives together, and let them loose in some of the most innovative playgrounds in the world. Places like Meow Wolf. Experiences like CURRENTS.

WHAT WE SAW WAS NOTHING SHORT OF MAGIC

THE POWER OF PLAY

WE DISCOVERED THE POWER PLAY HAS ON CREATIVITY

It ignited us. We switched gears and spent the past two years researching everything we could find on the subject.

Science shows that unstructured play in creative environments encourages new insights, analytical thinking, and boosts creativity.

BASED ON THIS REVELATION, WE DESIGNED 8x

FLEX YOUR CREATIVE MUSCLE

WE MAKE OUR LIVING BEING CREATIVE

Each day we're given a blank page and tasked with coming up with something new.

We don't have the luxury of waiting for inspiration to strike. Our creative muse isn't always around – even the best muse takes a coffee break. We're left on our own to find creative solutions.

CREATIVE FITNESS IS KEY

Not unlike working our bodies at the gym, we need to find ways to keep our creative muscle active, flexible, and strong. When we don't – our creativity suffers. The good news is there's a simple solution: PLAY. 

Research shows that play is one of the best ways to flex your creative muscle. We've created a unique playground to do just that. 8x experiences are designed to bring out the best in you and your teammates by encouraging strategy, exploration, and creative problem-solving in an insanely fun way! Spark your creativity – come play with us!

THE SCIENCE

Here are a few concepts that ignited us when researching the power play has on creativity.

Get sparked!

CHALLENGING ACTIVITIES

energize creative people

DIVERSITY OF EXPERIENCE

more than anything else, is critical to creativity

DISRUPT YOUR HABITUAL THOUGHT PATTERNS

explore new things and engage in something you’ve always wondered about

FLEX YOUR CREATIVE MUSCLE

creative fitness is key – keep your creative muscle active, flexible, and strong!

WARM UP YOUR BRAIN...SOLVE A PUZZLE

just like an athlete who stretches before game time, creatives must focus the mind before taking on a design challenge

PLAY FACILITATES

insightful, divergent thinking — in other words, creativity

SEEK A BROAD SET OF PERSPECTIVES

creativity is all about combining knowledge in new and unique ways

OPENNESS TO EXPERIENCE

is consistently the strongest predictor of creative success

THE EXPERIENCE

Escape the ordinary

WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR WHEN DESIGNING THE PERFECT 8x EXPERIENCE?

Our vision is a city with a multitude of creative play venues. We’re not talking the Dave & Buster's big box store kind of experience. We’re talking places that escape the ordinary and live the extraordinary. 8x location scouts are pros at sleuthing uniquely eclectic hot spots, that turn 88 hours into an experience you won't forget.

For this first year, we didn’t have to look far.8x 2020 combines the Breaking Badness of ABQ with the over-the-top Meow Wolfyness of Santa Fe.

In 88 short hours, 8 teams of 8 players challenge each other in 8 experiences designed to bring out the best in you by encouraging game-based strategy, exploration, and creative problem-solving.

Whether you’re exploring the haunted Blackwell Manor or attempting to save Captain Secret, you and your team work to solve unique and challenging puzzles, connect the clues that are provided, and escape in under 60 minutes. And if you do? Points!

At Meow Wolf your team will explore immersive and interactive experiences that transport you to fantastic realms of story, complete with a creative challenge that pits you against the other teams at 8x. Winner takes…points!

We’ll visit Electric Playhouse – the gaming and recreation wonderland that requires no goggles or equipment to transport you to another reality. And as you’ve guessed, this experience will also earn…points.In fact, your participation in each of the 8 experiences of 8x earns points for your team. And these aren’t cheesy points that get you a 50¢ prize at the ticket counter. Nope! Team points will be accumulated in each of the 8 experiences…and the winning team will divvy up $888!

So what would make this experience more fantastical than it already is? What if there was a Mystery Player! Someone in the industry. Someone of past motion speaker caliber who played alongside? Someone who rotates on each team as an added advantage?

And what if you had the opportunity to listen and engage as this Mystery Player shared industry tactics and creative insight at intimate espresso bar settings?You don’t need to imagine. This is 8x.
