Sample Page Title

You’ve most likely seen a music biopic film or television present: a narrative of the rise-to-fame of some band you understand. You’ve most likely heard songs by a digital band, animated characters enjoying music recorded by actual inventive artists.

We Are OFK is each of these items.

  • OFK is our digital band, with actual songs on streaming companies, like some other band you want.
  • We Are OFK is a online game concerning the origin story of our band.

With me to this point? Okay so we’re kinda making a biopic about ourselves. An auto-biopic, for you phrase nerds… 

The story of a music biopic normally goes like this: A small-town artist works arduous, isn’t appreciated, and virtually provides up. Then they meet a document label government who “will get it”, or they impress any person well-known at a bar, and that individual launches them into stardom. They document an album! They go on tour! They see the world! Intercourse! Oh no, medication! …They hit rock-bottom. Their pals are offended or unhappy or no matter, and a few mixture of those horrible issues motivates the artist to show their life round. They rediscover their love for music and keep in mind why they do that within the first place. I like these tales! They’re inspiring, however they’re so large.

Have you learnt what number of artists grow to be megastars? It’s not loads. Most musicians by no means “make it”, and making music does not pay a dwelling wage. However nonetheless, tons of individuals make music, irrespective of whether or not they receives a commission or not. These large pop-star tales are inspiring, however I feel the folks simply attempting to make something… that’s magic to me.

Similar factor with digital bands. They’re so glamorous and imaginative, however they’re bigger than life. For all of us on Staff OFK… we don’t know anybody like that, actually. We’re principally hanging out on couches, doodling, consuming sandwiches in a park, or ordering supply noodles once more.

We Are OFK is our indie-sized experiment at making a smaller biopic. A smaller digital band. An imagined group, created by artists, musicians, and recreation designers who all understand how arduous it’s to only make one thing, end it, and put it out into the world, as a result of we nonetheless wrestle to do this most days. What wouldn’t it seem like to create digital musicians who watch performances of those pop-stars on their laptops in mattress, and know they’re most likely by no means going to play a stadium live performance? We wished to inform that story – how arduous it’s to make music, to write down even one music, to document one other video to publish on-line, and hope somebody leaves a pleasant remark. Getting by means of day jobs, loneliness, awkward group chats, somebody at a celebration who gained’t cease speaking to you… all of it.

We made our biopic as a recreation, as a result of we really feel near this band, our band, and we would like you to, too. You’ll determine issues they are saying, what texts they ship, how they specific themselves as they undergo their smaller journey of attempting to make one thing they are often pleased with. I do know we’re pleased with this recreation / band / episodic sequence… the entire thing!

We Are OFK premieres August 18 on PS5 and PS4, after which each week after that, till you may have all our episodes, that includes all OFK’s new songs from their debut EP.

Not a full album but, as a result of hey making stuff is difficult! All of us have to start out small.
