OFFF Festival

March 3, 2012 in Blog, Events

The aim of the OFFF Festival which has been going on around the world for 10 years is to create a post-digital cultural festival. Actually the aim of the festival is digital visual design. But I gave it a go when I heard that the people giving presentations are the number one’s of the world. Father of the graphic design Neville Brody, premier of Flash design Joshua Davis, and The Mill who got the academy award with the movie Gladiator and collected various awards of Bafta was there. When I think about it, as someone dealing with sound, for the parts complete each other, being there was very reasonable for me. I contacted most important names. I will tkae support from them for my crazy projects.

My overall impression about these people is like that. All of their view of life is quite positive and they are wide open to communication. They are not specialists but generalists. They try to experience everything and collect them as experiences. They first create ideas, then look for convenient tools. If they can’t find any, they develop the software (they took time and learn it). Besides the regular business, they give themselves homeworks or experiments and they try to create and realize. Making lots of mistakes and facing failures are important for them but they never ruin a work. They apply this point of view as trying more, making more drafts, and throwing away more.
