  6. IamInnocent Writes:

    Best of luck, I mean, really: but I am confident that by the end of those 10 weeks you’d become a pretty good jumper.

    Good – insanity is exactly what this movie needs!

  8. IamInnocent Writes:

    Or maybe this is the result of italian coffee?

  26. ardee Writes:

    I love the hair animation on that character, very realistic. Devs need to work on the grooming tools though.

  27. margreet Writes:

    you guys are crazy!

  28. Tobbe Writes:

    “5 characters (plus a butterfly)”
    is there a secret character that you havent shown us yet? :-O or is the butterfly the fifth character?

  29. Jrom Writes:

    This is excellent.. :-)

  30. Auria Writes:

    Well this is reminiscent of Elephants Dream. Awsome animation, but I didn’t get the plot ;)

  31. Mats Halldin Writes:

    At this moment I’m not entirely sure I really want to know that much about Blender.

  40. Nathan Writes:

    super wu-man: I, for one, would love for you to goof on us. But perhaps that would take the fun out of it, eh?

  41. bjornmose Writes:

    well .. kids had a lot of fun .. but wife wonders if it was good to let me go for physics sprint SO +++ for entertainment
    — mental health.
    well don’t care .. get Brecht to do a dance like that.. while we’re on it hug Brecht for that sparse matrix stuff works like a charm .. gone back to code rock solid soft bodies for particles

  42. Kent Mein Writes:

    Just curious how your orgainzing things in blender. Do you have a seperate blend file for each scene and a blender scene for each shot or some other standard thing ?

  43. pyrosever Writes:
