    Directorial Address 02

    Friday, December 18th, 2009

    Good afternoon, blog! How’s it going?

    Thanks everyone for your comments and for keeping tabs on us. We even appreciate unreasonable criticism! Here’s a little update from the studio:

    Didn’t get a chance to interview Nathan, Soenke or Brecht, but next time around I’ll be in their faces!


    1st Minute – Animatic

    Friday, December 4th, 2009

    So. In a continuation of our “1st Minute” series, here is the current state of our Animatic!

    Keep in mind that this is *very* rough. The fight is literally a bunch of random drawings that look like a fight– there is no choreography and very little visual continuity between drawings. (This will be filled in later once we work out the fight with the kung fu guys!) The scratch dialogue has, uhhh… room for improvement. But check it out:

    Forgive the patchy drawings– unfortunately David left before he could get to work on the boards, so these were done by me. Rough sound design was done in like an hour by Jan Morgenstern. It totally makes it work! And guess who did the voices?



    Revealed: Title, Character Design and 1st Minute

    Tuesday, October 27th, 2009


    Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Yesterday was the last day of the Blender Conference and we’re all still recovering!

    But we haven’t forgotten about you. We have a number of posts coming up to go over some of the stuff we showed off at the Durian talk on Sunday.

    But first things first. For those of you who missed the live stream, we revealed a lot about the movie–including the (working) title!

    Video: Preproduction Week

    Sunday, September 6th, 2009

    Welp, this week has been entirely dedicated to story and coming up with a final script, so it’s taken me some time to wade through the footage from the preproduction week.

    Finally had some time to churn it out today. A bit long, but check it out!

    Tutorial: Painting time-lapse by David Revoy

    Tuesday, August 18th, 2009

    david-tuto-lezardAs a preview of what to expect in the Durian DVD box – and most probably also an additional title in our “Open Movie Workshop” tutorial DVD series, our concept artist David Revoy made this incredible cool time-lapse video of a concept art painting. His workflow reveals great tips and tricks, a must see for everyone who’s in awe about watching people with artistic skills, and for every artist who is interested to learn from the masters!
