Year Zero - OFFF Barcelona 2011 Main Titles

Following in the footsteps of Prologue Films and The Mill, PostPanic have created this year’s prestigious opening titles ‘Year Zero’ for OFFF Festival 2011 in Barcelona​bcn2011/​

Written by Mischa Rozema and British graphic designer, Si Scott, the opening titles reflect their dark thoughts on a possible future. Directed by Mischa and shot on location in Prague, the film guides the viewer through a grim scenario embedded with the names of artists appearing at this year’s OFFF festival.

The live action was brought back to Amsterdam for post, primarily carried out by PostPanic’s in-house team of artists but also with the additional help of freelancers and partner companies that we have enjoyed strong creative relationships with over the years. It’s really fair to say that this was a labour of love by a passionate crew of people.

Iceland: Beyond Sigur Rós

Sigur Rós together with Bjork are synonymous with most people’s perception of Icelandic music. Well, i don’t really fault them for that as they are arguable among the greatest musical exports to have emerge out of Iceland onto the world stage. 

But there’s more beyond Jonsi and this short by nonprofit collective Serious Feather explores just that in a bid to showcase the diverse and dynamic indie music scene in Iceland.  

Filmed beautifully in full HD, the documentary features interviews with the who’s who of Iceland’s music scene. 

You can also look forward to terrific performance from personal favorites- Berndsen andSeabear among a slew of others including Lára Rúnars, Bloodgroup, For A Minor Reflection, Sykur, Severed Crotch and DJ Musician.

Pity they didn’t feature my other favorite Icelandic band Múm but still pretty awesome!

Enjoy here!
