The hilarious short movie Caminandes, which was honored by a feature in the SIGGRAPH Animation Festival this year, is currently working on a second episode. This time, it'll be produced as an Open Movie by the Blender Foundation and you can support it by purchasing the movie for € 24.75.
From the new Caminandes website:
Hello there fellow cartoon lovers!
Following the success of the first Caminandes episode, we are proud to announce the production of the next one in the series! It’s going to be a ~2 minutes short film and it will be produced and released as a Blender Foundation Open Movie Project. The same spirit as the first episode, but this time we’re going fully open as well as supporting Blender.
Caminandes Episode 2
This means that along with the short film in the highest quality format, you will get access to all the production assets (characters, environments, lighting sets), great documentation, tutorials, the software it was made on, just like in any other open movie.
All this material is going to be available for purchase on the Blender e-shop, with two options:
- Green: Downloadable digital file. Unzip, watch and play with the files!
- Cooler: A fancy 8 GB USB card (yes, no more DVD!), customized with Caminandes artwork. As well as the downloadable .zip file.
- Both options include your name on the credits roll if ordering before October 12th.
