F5 / Day One

My friend Andrew and I went to F5 today, and a lot of other people did too apparently. We had to snag seats in the balcony for the first part but moved to floor seats after lunch. It worked out because the presentations got better as the day went on. I was very excited to hear Asif Mian speak as part of 1stAveMachine’s presentation and speaking to him out in the lounge later on was a bonus.

The other highlight for me was The Blackheart Gang’s screening of The Tale of How:

I am definitely getting inspired out here!

    Too bad I missed Blackheart Gang, the video looks great. I really enjoyed Moment Factory though.
