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

“Winter Music Conference is my ground zero. It has always provided the perfect storm of opportunity and excitement for up and coming artists, including myself back in 2003, where I first caught a glimpse of how it felt to have an audience respond to my work. Over the years, I’ve always made it a point to have WMC in my calendar because that’s the spot where everyone congregates and you can feel it in the air. Creativity, brother and sisterhood, FUN and most of all the chance to come together as a community and celebrate the reason we are all here—the music.”

DJ/Producer

Before there was Ultra Music Festival, there was The Winter Music Conference, the annual coming together of the dance music tribes. Miami in March is a fundamental place to be from a business perspective, and has always given me endless opportunities for discovering new partnerships and talent. WMC brings together the dance music industry and surrounding culture like no other event in America. I’ve been attending WMC for nearly 20 years, and I’m very much looking forward to experiencing its evolution in 2019.


Matt Colon

Partner/founder, Deckstar Artist Management

I first went to WMC ’87, the year I started Big Beat. It was an incredibly inspiring congregation of indie labels, DJs, artists, songwriters, producers and dance music lovers dedicated to breaking and discovering new music. WMC has been instrumental in furthering the dance and electronic cause; keeping the community connected, vital and relevant, and serving as an amazing springboard for talent. It’s a fantastic crucible for the future of dance music. Long may it live.


Craig Kallman

CEO & Co-Chairman Atlantic Records, Founder Big Beat Records

WMC is and has always been the lifeblood of the dance music scene. Never missed a year since ’96, I can’t imagine Amsterdam Dance Event or Ibiza Music Summit existing without the blueprint that WMC originated. Seeing this revived is absolutely essential to reunifying the North American scene surrounding electronic music and its fringes.
