I want to say that i’m very impatient to see the result of everyone’s work! Since Elephant Dream, i appreciate the job, very excited to talk about movies around me (firends, family, colleagues…) and to see all of it again and again.
I appreciate reports about your work (timeline…).
There must be something about Dutch screenwriting that every time causes each page to inflate in screentime way beyond the normal minute, like one of those little toy thingies that blow up when you soak them in water. 🙂
Sintel looks to be the best of the three open movies so far. Sorry, Elephants Dream, didn’t really like you, even being a Blender showcase, the story was terrible, LOVED Big Buck Bunny, matching story with great visual, and this looks in word: EPIC.
But I really think it’s because Blender is progressing in an upward progression. In Truth, the animation in Elephant’s Dream just didn’t match up with BBB, and Sintel’s going to beast everything. I didn’t really get Elephant’s Dream, but I showed a whole bunch of kids BBB, and they Loved it. I know a whole bunch of guys that will love Sintel even more though.
Very cool! good luck with the hard remaining work! 🙂
Yeah, this would be funny to know that! 🙂 However, I wonder if the team could manage the overworking stress (and also being far from the family without Pixar-like income), or should be progressively renewed…
This is naïve, but some considerations… Say there’re 15 people full time, 1000€ daily is a bare minimum (pessimistic). According to weboutlook, about 200$ could be collected if all the ads revenues of both Blendernation and Blenderartists were used (stupid, as the servers must eat a significant part of the income). For Blender, according to its frequentation, 300$ daily are realistic. So only one third of the funding could be reached to keep this sustainable?
11 minutes … -.- i thought it would be longer because of all the work designing, riggin, texturing, camera movement etc. i know it takes long to render everything but when the settings are done and you “only” have to animate the caracters i would expand a movie to at least 60 mins^^ anyway: nice work so far, i am goin to watch it and im lookin forward to it^^ power to the open movies xD
Ok, so, everyone just mentions “yay, Nathan is silly!” – Now WHAT was that silly thing, at that moment? Or was it really just a joke everyone could just laugh about?
They debated in the background until Nathan held up that message. Then, the conversation was over. So, it must have to do with what just happened that moment…
I just hope the team will not suffer too much crunch/overtime. I think it would be better if the film was shorter, so there would be more time to make it perfect. Should we all order another DVD, so the team can grow even bigger? 😀
