Mill+ is thrilled to announce that it will be creating the opening video for the 19th edition of OFFF Barcelona. Ilya Abulkhanov of Mill+ is set to direct the piece, which will premiere at the festival on April 25, 2019.

A platform for hosting innovative and international speakers, OFFF is a creative community offering an annual, three-day program of conferences, workshops, activities and performances by the world’s most groundbreaking designers and creators. 

Over the past 14 years, Ilya’s meticulous eye for design has led to a successful career of challenging, graphically-driven projects across the feature film, music, gaming and advertising industries. Since joining Mill+, Ilya has led high-profile projects including the music video for Rihanna’s ‘Sledgehammer’ (pictured above) and the iconic title design for JAY-Z’s GRAMMY-nominated ‘The Story of O.J.’

Following the opening video debut, Ilya has been invited to take the OFFF stage where he’ll share an inside look at the making of the film and his process behind it. The Mill’s Will MacNeil (Art Director) is also slated to speak at the festival.
