Taken from Onedtozero’s official website [link to quoted text, here]:

onedotzero is a contemporary, digital arts organisation with a remit to promote innovation across all forms of moving image and motion arts. activities encompass public events, artist + content development, publishing projects, education, production, creative direction, and related consultancy services.

Onedotzero was in Nottingham on the 30th April, previewing 32 short films which comprised of motion graphics, character animation and experimental works, featured across different disciplines such as illustration and graphic design. Of course, I  took up this opportunity to witness some of the best work out there (it would be silly of me not to, especially when it is in Nottingham). There were a few productions which I had viewed on Motionographer a few months previous but overall subjected myself to this refreshing experience in being viewer, away from the design frame of mind.

Such pieces that caught my attention, Tractor (Martin Böttger and Bruno Dias), Fading Object (Rob Rae), and Big Idea [don’t get any] (James Houston), appeared to possess unique qualities which seemed to thrive among the 32 clips. In Tractor, the variations of shapes visualised the sound beautifully, whilst speed and time hastened at the intesnity of the music. Timing was perfect for Fading Object, as the music seeped elegantly with the animation. As for Big Ideas [don’t get any], the old hardware was enough to wow an audience, imitating the music of Radiohead ‘Nude’.
