OFFF titles

offf.jpg

One last bit of fun from the OFFF conference that happened this past weekend in NYC is the opening title sequence created by Dstrukt and The Ronin. In a weekend chock full o’ motion graphics, this simple opening, focusing more on beautiful shots, editing and music was a refreshing break. As always with these directors the great audio design was done by Hecq.

That was pretty cool. They needed to do a spell check though, they had Eric Natz”k”e’s name wrong.

It was so great to see (and hear) this on the big screen. What a viscerally and visually entertaining piece of work that truly represents the perfect hybrid of the sensibilities of these chaps.

Big ups to my UK and DE boys, it was a great weekend. Too bad HECQ couldn’t make it.

@dieLAMB – I agree. Amazing work and an amazing session.

Great job, I think the soundtrack is first rate, and the synch between audio and visual is great. Well done.

i was equally impressed with this work. it felt referential to other film work about new york, but i think it’s one of their more mature pieces. the cinematic soundtrack had a significant part on the overall feel, and it made my neck hair stand on end, which doesn’t usually happen, so that’s a good sign.

a direction i hope to see continue.

really nice! i love the connection between the sound and the visuals – the rythm really fits well ;)

ah and nice grading btw.

reminds me of the Attik…does anyone remember them?

I am just wondering if the autechre / IDM sound is some kind of unavoidable musical choice for mograph heads when making a non-narrative motion piece?

It’s hard to try to reinvent the wheel every time. But it’s better to focus on the communication: did it fulfill its purpose, was it fresh, was it surprising, was it different?
I like it, glad to see no symmetry, no floral elements or the usual “hey look we can do complex 3D with Maya/Realflow/Rhino/Boujou so the client is paying a lot.”

Almost claustrophobic …

Those Devoid of Yesterday boys are a real tripod of talent! I tell ya!

Hm, I feel the editing and sounding style of ‘Rubber Johnny’ in this work.

very dramatic. lovin’ the edit…the simple type treatment is a nice ‘break’ (in hindsight…as you mention) from the overload of swirling shapes and bright colours.
