OFFF 2013: Dvein

Dvein delivered a captivating talk this evening, here at OFFF 2013. Directors Teo Guillem and Carlos Pardo took to the floor in the Roots room to share the secrets behind some of their most inspiring pieces, including 'Magma', the mesmerising music video created for the studio’s own band, The Vein (scroll down to see it). We caught up with in-house producer Marga Sard to find out more…

Computer Arts: Dvein's music video for ‘Magma’ is insanely inspired. Where do you start with a project like this?
Marga Sard:
We had a couple of references in mind when we did it, like some of the desert sequences in [Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1970 film] Zabriskie Point. We wanted to use black and white as a starting point because we wanted a transition from a monochrome landscape to a colourful world full of paint. To that end, we looked to the black and white cinematography in Woodkid's single ‘I Love You’, Michael Haneke's film The White Ribbon and the title sequence of Tarsem Singh's The Fall.
