OFFF Main Titles 2013: Mr. Emilton’s Cabinet of Curiosities

OFFF 2013 Main Titles by From Form from OFFF, let’s feed the future on Vimeo.

There’s always much anticipation towards the new Offf Barcelona titles. At least, for me there is. With companies like The Mill, Post Panic, Upperfirst and Brosmind it almost seems like unfair compition to begin with. Not that there’s anything to win, but you definately want to show what you are worth.

This years title is made in a colaboration between dutch based design studio From Form and Part of Something.

They decided to take a step back. No over the top VFX, insane 3D animations and fast paced editing. Purely focussing on the narrative, telling an inspiring story about a man and his journey and the need to be curious.

The names of the speakers merged with the memorabilia and souvenirs of all his journeys. It’s not new to put the names of the speakers on objects, 2 years ago Post Panic did that for the same Festival. But the combination of a good storyline, nice camera angles and almost everything in-camera make this a piece to remember.

The superfine audio is done by 
Ben Lukas Boysen, as is becoming a tradition for the Offf festival. Also take note of the subtle cello track in the background.
