The Box / Room 17

“We Are Seventeen were asked to design, direct and animate 4 ident videos for the rebrand of The Box. The following ident “Room 17″ – I was responsible for the animation. The core concept was to show The Box as a portal into a parallel universe of excitement and mayhem. In our treatment we created some typically mundane scenes which when viewed through ‘the box’ would be shown to be alive with vibrant and unexpected energy, character and action.”

FUTURE PROOF – 2011 A/NZ PromaxBDA Opener

Realização: Nathan Drabsch(+).

“The DMC Initiative (DMCI) developed this piece as a response to the 2011 A/NZ PromaxBDA Conference title of Future Proof.

Our approach was to focus not on futuristic notions but to consider that which is timeless. People, the expression of self and the interactions between each other are timeless qualities relevant to creativity, no matter what the future holds.

The concept started quite fluidly, by briefing a variety of dancers, with individual performance styles, to develop choreography based on the concepts of growth, sharing, sending and receiving.

Directed by Nathan Drabsch, the performances were shot over one day using two RED Epic cameras, capturing the action at high speed. All design, editing and post production was done in-house by The DMCI team. We worked closely with composers and audio designers Mark Brandis & Jeff Black from ism studios, to create a unique score that perfectly compliments the performances.

As a whole, the focus is on the dancers as they create and interact with abstract forms in a vast unknown world. Their own movements determine the creation and final destruction of these elements. Their own paths of communication and creative expression have come full circle, and all that remains is the individual. ”
