Who doesn’t like a good cartoon? – especially the classics by Chuck Jones. Well, Virgilio Carlo de Menezes (aka VirgilioVasconcelos) has made the great classic, “One Froggy Evening”, the focus of his graduation project. That’s right, “One Froggy Evening” in Blender 3D!
This is very good work that retains all of the goodness and character of the original classic.
This is my graduation project, a short film for the Graphic Design course.
ItÂ´s a remake in homage to Chuck Jones and his classic “One Froggy Evening” (Warner Bros., 1955). Actually, we made the first scene of the cartoon.
I did all 3D stuff, including textures (my girlfriend helped me on these). The background is 2D, and was made by my group mate.
Now, if that isn’t enough, they’ve gone the extra mile and created a very nice “making-of” video that, although short in its duration, still manages to reveal quite a bit about the technical side of the creation – a must-see!
The animation is only of the first scene but, with a little encouragement, maybe they’ll finish it and leave us with something that will surely become a classic in the Blender community. Great work!
