The Other Side

In this session I will be presenting in-depth behind the scene materials of a number of spots and music videos that required complex pre and post production.

The finished films will have included various kinds of techniques, ranging from stop-motion, to CG and high-speed cameras.

The presentation will encompass projects I created as a director both at Bent Image Lab and Superfad.
