OFFF Barcelona 2014 Main Titles

Posted by Charles







Anyone in the visual creative field knows the OFFF titles are the pinnacle of pieces to work on. This year I feel like it was brought to a whole new level. The duo of Ash Thorp and Anthony Scott Burns brings us another incredible short film. Their last collaboration was on Manifold, directed by Burns, which was one of my favorite pieces last year. The visuals in this piece are arresting to say the least, from the aerials, to the dark visitor to the german shepherd and the haunting suspense. Excellent work from the entire crew involved in this piece.

I’d like to write more, talk about how well shot this, post even more stills from the film, but I’d rather not spoil the journey for you. I really hope these two continue projects like this, this is pure inspiration. Now, let’s dim the lights, enter fullscreen and get headphones deep.

Good lord I love this blog. That was so cool. The natural aspects combined with whatever those rotating graphics were… And the “passenger”. And the audio! The slap is something I’d like to use. Very jarring.

Definitely dimmed the lights and cranked the headphones up at work for this, too.

Fantastically made.

Did you see Ash Thorp’s Project 2501? An homage to Ghost in the Shell.. Extremely impressive work.

It’s been interesting to see the conference titles brief develop and change over time. There has been and more stronger focus on type, motion & cutting in the past with the work by Rob Chiu 2007—9. Its cool to see more cinematic /narrative elements coming forward. This is like a full on film!
