Here I am now, entertain me…


Last weekend was full of 80’s entertainment (system, the NES™, you know?). First
of all I went to see King Kong. If you feel numb, like I did last friday, this is the
thing to do. Dazzling special effects, in a classic lovely love story, dude! And on
Saturday and Sunday I went to the Twin Peaks Marathon ‘Damn fine coffee!’.
Goshhh, that was a ride… I am Twin Peaked now, haha… And besides all of the
Laura Palmer topics, I still found time to finish reading the biography of C.B.
Vaandrager aka ‘Vaan’. Which is a must reader if you’re a Rotterdam fanatic,
like me…

Entry #300: Meet The Maestro


We were asked by the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the
Kunstgebouw (Delft?) to design an identity for their soon starting annual
educational project called ‘Meet the Maestro’. During MTM, each year —
starting next year— a super talented and obstinate film director will be the
focus of attention. This year, as you can see, it’s Michael Haneke, of whom
I’ve seen quite some films and can highly recommend the films ‘Funny Games’
and (especially) ‘Le temps du loup’, which is a stunning apocalyptic forecast-
type movie that shows people aren’t really different from other animals. It’s
merely a matter of circumstances.

Anyway, we came up with this universal Maestro-ic ‘M’ that wears a bow-tie
as if he’s a sort of chef or a maître or a conductor of some sort. Influenced by
some of our heroes that we don’t mention too often, like Paul Rand or Saul
Bass, we thought it nice to create a sort of suspensy look to the whole thing.

We were facing seemingly un-do-able deadlines, but in cooperation with some
of our own most talented friends we pulled it off. We managed to come up with
a whole identity, an eleven second trailer (animated by the one and only Cosh
of Cosh Studios / Sound Design by Lucas van der Velden and Gideon Kiers
of Telcosystems) and a website (built by Frank ‘Das ist ein Hund’ Hartman).
Hats off to all of you and the good people at the IFFR and the Kunstgebouw.

Check out all the good stuff right here.
