Oh man this was just too awesome! Today was the second day of FITC Amsterdam and it just got even better than it already was.
Right now I’m still rushing on adrenaline and waiting for fatigue to kick in, so here’s just a little overview, more lenghty reviews will follow in the next few days..
Having overslept I walked into today’s first presentation not before halfway through, and honestly I instantly regretted not having been on time. Koen de Weggheleire did a really good job entertaining the audience (which still seemed kind of sleepy and reluctant with applauding) with his presentation about bitmap-manipulation. Especially the fly-smashing part really got me smiling.
The rest of the day was really just one big bunch of inspiration, seeing some really beautiful artwork by Jared Tarbell (here are the pieces he showed) and also Erik Natzke.
Also really mind-blowing was all of the audio-stuff Andre Michelle had to show (but more about that later).
In my opinion the best part of today was James Paterson‘s (most inspiring) presentation. I was already familiar with the work he’s done for VH1 and as it turns out I had already come across his website a couple of years ago, so seeing him show off all of his insanely awesome animations, characters and drawings was althemore exciting/interesting.
