QUIT BLENDER (or die!)

The Mango team has completed their first milestone: a five-day workshop in which they created a short film based on a script by Ton.

Ian writes:

BAM! Here we are, the finished kickoff film, only 5 days after starting.

Is it perfect? Nooooooo- we’d tweak this thing forever if we could- but we finished all the big stuff, and made a short film!

Today was a day of last minute tweaks and battling the render farm. At one point we had every computer in the place up and running rendering shots, along with the render farm. I suspect we would have been rendering on folk’s cellphones if we could.

    The closeups on the mouths pulled me out.  Titles GREAT, Sebastian best actor by far (hire him)

  • Matt Heimlich

    Looks great, I can definitely see where we are going to need some better fracture tools and whatnot in the pipeline for a true short film though.

  • Mookie

     The video obviously shows that Cycles needs shadow pass and Blender really nice demolition simulations. The movie itself is a good exercise and nothing else I guess.

  • Anonymous

    OMG!!! You guys have a cell phone render farm!?!?!?

  • Piotr Ko?odziejczyk

    Now I know why Blender doesn't ask if to save changes on quit!

  • Philippe ROUBAL

    AhAh ! Great little movie ! I laughed a lot with the "drill guns" ! Matchmoving is very nicely done, and actors are very funny ! Thank you very much for this moment of laugh !

  • Oana

    Very funny and surprising for just 5 days! team seems to enjoy it very much :)

  • encn

    Heh. I realize I have never, ever, ever, used Blender's official shiny Quit feature. I liked the hunted-by-drones sequence most, especially the final stop-turn. The most distracting technical aspect is the jump in color between the indoors/outdoors shots. 

  • Drxms

    I first went what!? :O But then i realised it was the title. :P Cool vid motion tracking rocks!

  • Wteeuwen


  • Ed Kosmicki

    When good blenders go bad

  • Sorbus

    Great! Keep it coming!

  • Bohan3d


  • Stefan Misic

    Very good. Can't stop laughing. (: How did they mad those little robots flying thorugh the scene? I thinks it's not with camera tracking..

  • Tom Ru

    A_W_E_S_O_M_E !
