onedotzero_cascade 2010

In October I was hand-picked to attend the onedotzero_cascade educational workshop in London as part of the 'Adventures in Motion' festival.

"This year the onedotzero_adventures in motion festival theme takes a utopian approach. In the past, mankind’s visions of the future were largely optimistic. The future was going to be a wonderful place, full of bright, new ideas and technology benefiting social harmony. Now, a decade into the 21st century, we find there is a propensity for doom and gloom. onedotzero wants the theme of utopia to bring a sense of adventure, hope and positivity about our future world to this years cascade project and onedotzero_adventures in motion festival."

I worked as part of a group of ten, with designers of different disciplines such as copyrighters, interactive and motion designers.  The week was really challenging but it was good to take part and work with talented people of different disiplines.  In November we went back to do our presentation at the BFI as part of the 'Adventures in Motion' festival - sadly I was only able to attend one other event during my short stay - 'Cityscapes', but it was great to see inspiring digital work and it definitely has made me want to do some work and do a film/animation project.
