About

Duncan Ransom

Duncan Ransom is the Founder and CEO of The Endless Collective, a full-service art, innovation and technology-driven production studio currently focused on creating experiential content across all industries.

His passion for art, therapy, and technology led to guest-speaking at events including SXSW, IFC New York, AMP Innovations, X-media Labs, Screen Australia, M&M Conference, and Mutek Montreal.

Prior to establishing The Endless Collective, Duncan served as a CG story artist and animator with Framestore London, the Visual Effects studio responsible for the imagery of many of the most visually stunning films today, such as the Oscar-winning film, Gravity. His animation work has been seen in films such as Edge Of Tomorrow, 47 Ronin, Clash Of The Titans and Gravity, for which he received, alongside his VFX team, Academy Awards in the VFX and Cinematography categories. He has also worked with other notable post-production studios including MPC, Prime Focus, Collider, The LAB and Rising Sun Pictures.

With his team at The Endless Collective, he has designed and directed immersive campaigns for clients including Samsung, Google, BMW, GUCCI, MAC, Ernst & Young, Savage X Fenty and Intel to name a few. Their VR work has been showcased at Sundance, SXSW, Mutek, Art Basel CHART, Celebrate Brooklyn and Cannes for which they won a Cannes Lion award, in collaboration with Punch Drunk International, the creators of Sleep No More.

He is inspired by the ever-expanding intersection of emerging technologies and their effective and positive contribution to what appears to be, a very interesting future ahead.

Testimonials

I’m so glad to see WMC rebooted with such thoughtful content and first-class curation. It’s been a long time since the industry had a must-do American event and this is it. The reborn WMC!


Patrick Moxey

Ultra Music

I feel fortunate to have been part of the first-ever WMC. Over the 35 years, it has grown to give us an international forum where we exchange music and ideas. As an attendee and host of many of the award shows, I am proud each time I see new young talent emerge and then become world-renowned. We all have so many Winter Music Conference moments of hearing a seminal breakthrough record for the first time as well as a new DJ with star quality. Magical moments in my career.

If you want to know about our industry from the people that make it happen then go to WMC. It’s an accelerated masterclass in all things dance music.


Carl Cox

DJ/Intec Records

Miami has always been a place I’ve considered home and WMC was essential for me and the label in many ways. From showcasing our new music to keeping up with all the new artists and releases. It was the official kickoff of the year and I’m happy to see it thriving again.

The Winter Music Conference represents a chance for Beatport to connect directly with our customer community. Having a strong conference means we have a platform to embrace the entire spectrum of electronic music culture. We are proud to support the resurgence of this great event.
