Daniela + Octavian = mots
Daniela Nedovescu is a writer and producer. She grew up playing outside when memorizing phone numbers was still a thing, but forgot all about that when she discovered the social media like. Since then, she's obsessed with getting as many likes on her posts as she can no matter the consequences.
Octavian Mot is an artist and director. He found out early that talking to computers is a superpower that can be harnessed - that and saving money, something he's still struggling to harness. Now he can hold a good 10-minute monologue about filmmaking, AI, or astronomy without too much stuttering. He thinks that he lives in a simulation and often doubts the nature of his reality.
We've been making a variety of stuff together for, surprisingly, over a decade, in a way that is often civilized and sane, but definitely not calm nor friendly. Actually, not sane, nor civilized either.
We're often commissioned by generous people to make content, produce films, build interactive media installations, or help them find meaning - honest work that is simple and only rarely requires long therapy sessions when done. Sometimes we get overwhelmed with ambition or optimism, and even start projects on our own.
