Each year NODE FEST opens with a bespoke title sequence from the best in Australasian motion design studios. This highly sought after opportunity gives artists and studios the chance to craft a memorable piece of content for our audience and the world.

Node Fest Opening Titles 2O18 by Substance

The titles for Nodefest stem from our desire to explore connection and how this relates to both the field of motion design, and the festival itself.

Node brings together the best in Australian and New Zealand motion, presenting a range of styles, tools, techniques, ideas, and approaches. It inspires us to explore a wider view of motion design, both in our own practice and with regard to our place in the design industries.

The connections we make with these techniques and ideas – and with each other – cause changes that will ultimately inform our own process of creation.

The titles for Nodefest 2018 take these core ideas of Exploration, Connection, and Creation, and weave them together through the narrative of the Explorer, where each stage of the journey is only made possible by the steps preceding, and a successful outcome may not be visible when we first set out.
