HIFF TALKS PODCAST: Interview with Darieus Legg, HIFF43 Key Visual Artist

HOCCI’s Olivia Trice interviews Darieus Legg, the artist behind HIFF43’s key art visual and main trailer artist. Darieus’ style was inspired by his love of manga and anime (Katsuhito Otomo and Osamu Tezuka) and his philosophy of “being stoked” as a lifelong surfer, born and raised on the Big Island of Hawai‘i.  In addition, he also had a documentary short in this year’s Festival entitled STOKER MACHINE. To follow more on what he’s doing, as well as upcoming screenings for his film, go to daeriuslegg.com.

Olivia Trice (She/Her) is a multi-hyphenate producer and force to be reckoned with. She is a graduate of Hawaii Pacific University with a BFA in Multimedia Cinematic Production & Screenwriting. With 5 years of TV/Film production experience under her belt, Olivia is credited for her work on GODZILLA VS. KONG, HAWAII FIVE-O, MAGNUM P.I., and AMERICAN IDOL. As a former ambassador of the Community & Teen’s department at Instagram, she has also spent much of her development online translating those connections into real-life impacts and business collaborations. While her artistic expression has evolved to span multi-forms of digital media, Olivia’s passions remain photography, experimental filmmaking, and storytelling through aerial dance/improvisation. As of this year, Olivia is a Wahine in Film Lab Fellow with Hawaiʻi Women in Filmmaking.

The HIFF ONLINE CREATIVES & CRITICS IMMERSIVE (HOCCI) program supports sustainable film criticism in Hawai‘i through mentorship and paid career opportunities. The mission of HOCCI is to broaden diversity in film criticism across the Pacific region and use influencer branding strategies to spark career opportunities in Hawai’i, not be hampered by oceans, state borders and distance, because geography is no longer a barrier. The 2023 HOCCI is supported by Critical Minded, a grant-making and learning initiative that supports cultural critics of color in the United States.
