Creathon made in Georgian Mountains - Creative Touch Accomplished its Mission

On 27 February – 1 March, Creative Touch brought together UX/UI Designers, film directors, VR/AR developers, product managers, content creators, artists and marketers up in the mountains of Kazbegi for an unforgettable experience. 

During the event, invited speakers and attendees were divided into groups and given the challenge to work on projects that would decide the dilemma of Leeloo from The Fifth Element: what’s the use in saving humanity?! At the end of the event, after a series of brainstorming and group working, teams presented inspirational short movies to answer Leeloo’s question, but that’s not where all the action ended. 

There were sightseeing, movie night with Georgian short movie “Behind the Doors” by Nika Kurdadze, winner of the movie competition by Touch; educational keynote talks and workshops, where attendees learned how to deal with creative blockages, design working products and even find more creative ways to have fun. Through networking, group working and games, Creative Touch accomplished its mission and made its attendees ideate and create together.

Keynote talks and workshops were conducted by speakers from companies like DreamWorks Animation, Wargaming, Scorpion Dagger, Revolver Entertainment, Google, Augmented Pixels, Studio Impulse, Boiler Room, Smashing Magazine, Radioaktive Film, thisisdavidwilson.com, Bank of Georgia and others. All the attendees had a chance to ask their questions during Q/A sessions with speakers and networking parties, or to get feedback from them on their projects.
