Looks like a well known Blender user has made the big time with aÂ spot on theÂ Colbert Report.Â The Colbert Report is a U.S.Â TV show hosted by Stephen Colbert and is a parody of pundit news shows (and is a show I watch all the time).
Pseudo-G writes on BA:
Anybody here watch The Colbert Report?
Even if you don't, you might note that Stephen Colbert recently filmed himself in front of a greenscreen with a lightsaber.
Anyhoo, Stephen challenged his viewers to add CG effects to this clip and submit it at colbertnation.com, his official fansite. The past few nights, he has shown some of the submissions people have sent him. Tonight's clip blew me away. And I was surprised to hear Colbert say that it was created by a certain WeirdHat! Now, WeirdHat sounds familiar to me from these forums, but also and especially for a live action-CG composition tutorial availiable at http://www.weirdhat.com/.
