OFFF Opening Titles 2011

(Vimeo Direktofff, via cpluv)

Grandiose und recht heftige Eröffnungssequenz zum OFFF (ehemals Online-Flash-Film-Festival) Barcelona 2011 von Mischa Rozema und Si Scott. Nix für Zartbesaitete, wenn man Probleme mit Bildern von Spritzen hat, die jemandem unter die Fingernägel getrieben werden, sollte man dieses Video vielleicht eher nicht anschauen.

Written by Mischa Rozema and British graphic designer, Si Scott, the opening titles reflect their dark thoughts on a possible future. Directed by Mischa and shot on location in Prague, the film guides the viewer through a grim scenario embedded with the names of artists appearing at this year’s OFFF festival. The live action was brought back to Amsterdam for post, primarily carried out by PostPanic’s in-house team of artists but also with the additional help of freelancers and partner companies that we have enjoyed strong creative relationships with over the years. It’s really fair to say that this was a labour of love by a passionate crew of people.

Mischa Rozema, Director, says:
“We knew we wanted to make something that would unsettle and menace the audience. It was always going to be dark but also highly aesthetic. This project has filled our spare hours for the past 6 months and it is incredibly satisfying to work on something that we were given complete creative freedom on – that’s a rare luxury these days.”
