OFFF St. Petersburg main titles
Motion Graphics, Entertainment
Inspired by Russia's rich history of storytelling, the main titles for OFFF St. Petersburg's post-digital culture festival are titled "Skazka," which roughly translates to "that which is told" in Russian. The story follows star-crossed lovers who build their world with motion, only to have it torn apart. Portions of the sequence were built on data captured from an originally choreographed piece performed by two dancers. The team at the New York Institute of Technology recreated their movements using motion capture.
Although the piece was built from sophisticated digital tools, analog processes inspired the aesthetic. The typography for the titles is all hand painted and then rebuilt in 3-D. The textures and colors are all ink, photographed and then manipulated in digital space. "Skazka" is where digital and analog commingle.
