FITC Toronto 2016 Titles

If you only watch one video today, make it this one.

With visuals by Giant Ant and audio by Antfood, the title sequence for this year’s FITC Toronto festival is a breathtaking interpretation of the history of video games. Riffing on the the conference’s “Level Up” theme, the project takes us from glitchy 8-bit to the budding possibilities of VR.
