Resonance - OFFF festival

As promised, here is the amazingly ambitious Resonance video - brought together by SR Partners.  It is a collaborative project with over 30 of the cream of  independent visual and audio designers / studios.

Animators and Audio Designers were paired up at the beginning of the project and were given the guidelines to create a piece between 12 and 20 seconds and in HD quality.

The aim is to explore the relationship between geometry and audio in unique ways. Give yourself a moment to take this in..it's amazingly rich in both visual & audio technique...

 Nobody can deny the sheer dexterity of the artists involved in this project - there is some pure mo-graph porn in there for sure!  Personally I would have loved to have some kind of theme or narrative to hang it all together  - it felt a bit like watching lots of clips from amazing feature films of the future.  I can only hope that this film helps some of the people featured find work on bigger projects....

The piece was premiered at the OFFF 2011 festival in Barcelona and is also featured on Stash 81 as the Bonus Film. The film will also be played at Sonar, Pause Fest, Playground festival and Cutout fest.
