Reworked logo animation

Since I've decided to aim for a less 'dark' brand, I had to change up the style of the OIA logo animation.

Here's the updated version:

Back to the drawing board

I've just produced a track with great potential for a live Audiovisual Performance.

It starts off with a gloomy Jump-Up intro, and transitions seamlessly into a Neurofunk type of drop.

The only problem being, it's too dark. I'd love for the Florian OIA brand to feel a bit more gentle overall.

So back to the drawing board indeed!

From Biking to Teaching and Back

Back in 2021, I was a bike courier for Coolblue.

After taking on my Master's, graduating in the Audiovisual Arts, I got to teach at the Howest University of Applied Sciences.

Unfortunately, due to the heavy workload and a mismatch in profile, I had to quit the job.

Today, I've chosen to hop back on the bike. There are 3 reasons for this.

  • I love biking. Have been using it as my primary means of transportation since forever.
  • It's a physical job, in open air. The mind gets to disconnect, the body gets a workout.
  • Also important: The part-time job allows me to pay less 'taxes' when I'm VJ for clients.

This major change in career (if not overall lifestyle) allows headspace for something new.

As you can tell from my previous blog posts, I've created a new brand: Florian OIA

This OIA brand will serve as a stage for my future creative endeavors as an artist.

TROWFLOX will still exist alongside this brand, but exclusively in the context of VJing.

You can read more about it below. Here's the website:

Logo Animation


The inevitable destiny of a raindrop is to hit the surface. Wherever it lands it changes structures forever. Rippling smooth lakes and nurturing young seeds.

Here's to being a raindrop. Together let us make rain.

Starting a new brand as an artist

I'll be launching a new brand into the world: [FL]O[R]IA[N]

Or in short, OIA

Here's a visual below (transition between logo and monogram to be animated soonish)

This OIA brand will serve as a stage for my future creative endeavors as an artist.

Nonsense Techno & Bad Habitz

Last weekend I had the pleasure to provide LED visuals for both Nonsense Techno & Bad Habitz at the Kavka Zappa Antwerp.

I must admit that I found more motivation in the Drum & Bass event, compared to the Techno one. I am aware that this is mainly due to my musical preference for Drum & Bass indeed.

It made me wonder if it might be better for me to begin being more selective towards accepting future events, taking into account the not unimportant element that is the one of music genre.

MXD @Howest

It's official, this September I started to teach at Howest's new Bachelor's: Mixed Experience Design.

For the next few months we start with the basics of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator as well as the fundamentals of Design Principles.

Later on there would be an opportunity for me to teach more of the (live) animation related topics, such as After Effects, Video Mapping, etc. ... that are closer to my craft as a Live Performance VJ.

I sure don't want to get ahead of myself but I find that the particular combination of this new teaching job, together with the ever-increasing demand for VJ jobs, will force me to make some drastic choices at some point when it comes to how I choose to spend my time.

I recently came to understand that for me to maintain an intellectually demanding daytime job during the week, as well as a physically demanding nighttime job on the weekends, clear boundaries will have to be defined in multiple areas of life.

Pukkelpop 2023 – VJ in the CLUB + LIFT

It were long hours (12.00 till 04.00), and the hotel that was offered to me was a bit further from the festival area (35' by electric bike). Together with having to walk a lot between the two stages, this turned out to be a more tiring job than originally expected.

Now, that being said, I did find that the entire Pukkelpop team did their very best to make all my tasks happen as smoothly as possible. Not only the production-, technical-, and stage managers, but also the light- and sound operators themselves, helped me on several occasions.

That made the entire difference for me.

See you next time PKP! ( ▀ ͜͞ʖ▀) ☀

VJ adventures at Casino Blankenberge

After a successful collaboration on Cherry Moon Beach last week at Casino Blankenberge, I was asked to VJ again for three consecutive days.

The weekend blessed me with Yves Deruyter & Friends, FOU vs Tom Leclercq, and Zundays.

It was a lot to take on, but I managed and had a lot of fun. See you next time Blankenberge!

Fantasia Festival 2023

I was asked to VJ on the Hard Style stage that was hosted by MC Chucky and Friends for the Fantasia Festival earlier this month.

Despite the overwhelming heat, everything went smoothly and I had a great time overall. The atmosphere was both positive and professional. The best of both worlds!

3x Aftermovies from recent VJ Gigs

Two months ago, I VJed at the following 3 events. Here are their aftermovies.

  • Next Dimension Apocalypse, Alter Schlachthof Eupen 21st of April
  • Proxic Midnight Club Edition, Area V Hasselt 5th of May
  • Blurrd Unrecognizable Experience, Area V Hasselt 6th of May

Lovely to reunite with the Next Dimension Crew, they never disappoint. The Delta Heavy set was iconic.

Both Proxic and Blurrd enabled me to reinvent craft (once again) by pushing me to my sweet limits.

Two finalist and one regular selection for Trance Action Delivery

Trance Action Delivery made it to the finals for both the International Music Video Awards and the Munich Music Video Awards. It also got selected for the Around Films Festival Berlin. I'm extremely grateful for the selections making it so far.

One 4 star review and a very first film selection for Trance Action Delivery

I'm very glad to share that my Trance Action Delivery film [Student Animation Short] has received a 4 star review by Jack Brindelli for the Indy Film Library.

Although it seems the author slightly misinterpreted the supporters on the music as being the makers of the music instead (I'm the one who actually made the music myself, alongside the animation), the overall feedback written in the review is hugely positive. I'm especially glad with it.

Read for yourself:

Also quite exciting news is my very first film selection with Trance Action Delivery. It got selected for the Animated Music Video category at the Munich Music Video Awards.

3D Print of Antagonist [Trance Action Delivery]

Semi-cyborg, semi-alien, this antagonist exists only in the digital realm. Or does it?
