Motion Blur: graphic moving image makers is a book released by onedotzero in 2004. Produced by Shane Walter and Matt Hanson, it features a number of articles about, and interviews with, 28 multimedia artists and graphic houses. It also includes a DVD featuring a number of videos created by the aforementioned artists. The first edition of the book and DVD were housed in a foam cover, with the phrase onedotzero cut through the foam in a stencil fashion; the reprint does not include this cover.

The interviews explore the inspirations and creative processes used by the various artists, groups and graphics houses, as well as looking into their history. The text is accompanied by a vast range of still shots from videos and animations they have produced. The book can easily be thought of as a classic example of a coffee table book.

The book also features two essays entitled The seduction of moving image by Shane Walter and The end of celluloid by Matt Hanson.
