Big time gap!
ODDSAC: A visual album by Animal Collective and Danny Perez.
Hello all, it’s been a while since my last post (I’ve been tweeting quite a bit though), so there’s lots to talk about. If you’ve been following my doings since the Helvetica era, you might have noticed that once the DVD for a film has come out, I go into a research-induced gray zone when I start working on the next film, and during which I don’t blog as much. Well, I’ve started work on my next documentary, the third piece of the design trilogy. But I’ve also been working on ODDSAC.
About 4 1/2 years ago, even before I’d even started making Helvetica, I started producing an experimental film with the band Animal Collective and filmmaker Danny Perez. The filmmaking process and the band’s schedule over the past few years resulted in a lengthy wait, but the film just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is now touring the world. See the ODDSAC website for a trailer and more info.
I also just returned from several weeks in Africa, where I attended the Design Indaba conference and did double-bill screenings of Objectified & Helvetica in Cape Town. Will post a full report with pictures soon.
