GREETINGS FROM WILDEBURG
Wildeburg Festival wanted an festifal film that represented its bohemian and eclectic feel. Using an optimistic, colour-saturated aesthetic, Groeten Uit Wildeburg (Greetings From Wilderbug) comprises a riotous selection of moments captured throughout the festival. Combining shot footage with stereoscopic gifs it aims to give the sense of creative anarchy and joy that the weekend offers to so many.
The soundtrack for the film was written and composed by Studio Smink exclusively for the video. The washed-out synth pop theme feels nostalgic and modern at the same time, whilst hinting at the variety of musical genres Wildeburg hosts. Two years after the release of the film Wildeburg festival decided to release this soundtrack with two extra mixes by Alexander Robotnik and Arabian Prince (N.W.A) and an extended remastered DJ mix from the artist.
Following the successful release of the aftermovie, Wildeburg were looking for something different, so Studio Smink came up with a series of 25 ‘video postcards’ that could be shared by festival goers. Each of the video vignettes told a different story from the festival, from strolling through the campsite at sunset, to forest frolics and clambering over cars.
