The Pirate Crew of the Dead Rabbit

A once-in-a-lifetime showing! Witness the world premiere of the pilot episode of the Pirate Crew of the Dead Rabbit's live-action web-series! In tandem with production studio Bouthillier & Jacobs, the Rabbits have toiled like unto mad fishermen in the throes of a sea famine to bring you "Donnybrook": a good-old-fashioned bar brawl chock full of disagreeable thugs, disgruntled Irishmen, and displaced pirates. MC'd by everyone's favorite drunkard, Verax McDougal - and his good friend, Fritz the Psychopathic Hessian - this is a launch party you do not want to miss. Why? Because it's a party being thrown by pirates, you daft git!

Alba Sueiro


Dutch director Mischa Rozema (41) is also co-founder and Creative Director of PostPanic, an Amsterdam- based creative outfit. Mischa’s work is fundamental to the reputation Postpanic has developed over the past 15 years and his uncompromising creative vision has won awards worldwide. Mischa is best known for his ability to take seemingly ordinary projects in unexpected creative directions. His background in graphic design and an intense love-affair with film, set him on a path of creating unusual visual directions by combining whatever technique was available, be it live action, 2d/3d animation, motion graphics or VFX. This seamless combination of techniques within a single visual direction is often called Mixed Media and together with PostPanic, is something Mischa now specializes within. The past few years has seen Mischa particularly busy with high-profile digital and integrated projects for both US and European clients including Google, MINI, MTV, ASICS, Coca-Cola and Vodafone. Most recently, Mischa (along with PostPanic) created the prestigious main titles ‘Year Zero’ for the OFFF Festival 2011 in Barcelona. The titles were met with worldwide critical acclaim and Mischa was awarded, amongst other prizes for the titles, for Best Film Direction at the Golden Drum Awards, ADCN (Dutch Art Directors Club Awards) and a Golden pencil from the One Awards in NYC. In July 2012, PostPanic successfully raised money via Kickstarter for Mischa’s feature film project, SunDays, with stage one (a short film/trailer) due to be completed spring 2014.
