Description of the Project:
Directors bif designed and directed a fittingly striking Opening Title Sequence for OFFF Porto, a festival of Post-Digital Creation Culture, which describes itself as “an open community to all those who seek inspiration, creation and innovation.” 

In approaching the project, bif wanted to create an original opening title, more like a music video than a classic motion graphic piece. They set out to create a journey through the city following some colourful and quirky CG characters whose playful nature contrasts with the dark urban atmosphere, shot in black and white 5D.

The characters navigate through their gritty urban environments, filmed with live action clips shot in London. Motion capture was used alongside the CG bubble men who were 3D-tracked into live action sequences, giving a sense of realism and humanity to the quirky characters. 

The piece was played to all festival attendees and delegates, including inspiring figures from the industry and the content was not shown until the end of the festival.
