Mischa Rozema

TNT – “The People Network” and How It Was Made.

Below are two videos from who produced TNT’s “The People Network” directed by Mischa Rozema. There is the original spot, and then the making of / behind the scenes video as well. The original spot is a really, really solid piece of work, but as usual I am completely fascinated by the video that shows just how complex the production of this was. One of the things I really like about the behind the scenes documentary, is the fact that they talk about developing storyboards, and using animatics to determine things like cameras, lighting, lenses, etc. All of those things are hugely important for such an ambitious project. The crew is listed below both videos and I have to say, I’m surprised its not larger considering what went into the production and post production of this spot.

“We decided to really push what could be achieved in camera by actually creating a full size human truck on the set. It worked by having a huge, truck-sized, metal rig that could be pulled by an actual truck. We then filled it with an incredible Czech stunt team (famous for big Hollywood blockbusters) that had been rehearsing for weeks and gave the whole project a realistic approach.”

OFFF Opening Titles by Mischa Rozema, and Si Scott.

Post Panic have created the opening titles for the OFFF festival in Barcelona Spain this year. The title sequence was written by Mischa Rozema and British graphic designer, Si Scott, and is a reflection of their dark thoughts on a possible future for this world.The film guides the viewer through a grim scenario that embeds the names of the featured artists through out the film.

The film was shot on location in Prague, and directed by Mischa, with post production being completed by Post Panic in Amsterdam.

I love that this was conceived and shot  in a 21 by 9 aspect ratio.
