LOUD Festival (1998)

January 24th, 2008 by marcus

LOUD Festival

LOUD was Australia’s first national “Media Festival of Youth Culture and the Arts.” It took place across print, television, radio and online way back in January 1998. I was the person responsible for all the Internet projects including a collaborative online magazine and an online short film festival that brought the big wigs out from Real Media in the United States because, “no one has ever done anything like this before.”

Back in 1998, the LOUD web site was described by The Sydney Morning Herald as “pixel for pixel, the LOUD site is as good as anything that has been achieved on the Web in Australia, and probably better. It crackles with life, showering sparks of creativity in all directions.” Of course, today it just looks incredibly dated..
