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 stutter. He thinks that he lives in a simulation and doubts whether anybody besides him actually exists.
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 seldomly commissioned by brands or friends to help them engage with their audience. Whether that's through content, film, or interactive media installations, we try to create things that are interesting or new, and serve as conversation starters - quick solutions, that hardly ever escalate into huge projects which would send us to physical therapy or surgery when done.
Anyway, if there's one thing to take away from this text, is that you should always trust your instincts and go see a doctor if something hurts.
