I think I did that to challenge myself. Now that I had send this message to Wouter, I had almost no turning back. I had to produce something!
I then started to work on the 3d tracking and type animations around 11PM.
At 3:15 AM : first sound design tests, and video editing adjustments.
I was watching the clock, because I wanted to be able to take the train and be present at the opening of the festival (since I live 90 minutes away from Kortrijk).
But as I was about to finish the project and hit the Render button, my computer started to crash on me... I even lost some of my work and had to rebuilt things... but this time even better!
I was finally able to send my video file via wetransfer.com at 9:17 AM... as the festival had just opened its doors. I was hoping someone from the team would see my message even though they were certainly running everywhere as the first talk was scheduled at 10 AM...
So I jumped into my shower, jumped on the train to Kortrijk which brought me to the venue at 11:30 AM.
While I was on the road, a friend who was already there sent me photos and video clips.
And so I discovered with joy that they had well received the video file and played it!
Wouter had actually made a small intro before the start of the event to explain the whole story!
The only downside was I had not arrived yet.
But I had the opportunity to watch the Title in a real situation just before the last conference of Ash Thorp (one of my design heroes).
Wouter then re-explained the story and this time I had my little moment of glory!
