Nintendo is working with the Blender Foundation and Studio Lumikuu to release a stereoscopic version of Big Buck Bunny for the 3DS!
This one has been flooding our inbox: the webpage for Google’s new Nexus S Phone shows the Big Buck Bunny trailer to illustrate the ‘Entertainment on the Go’ section.
The HTML5 specification offers some nifty new possibilities for video manipulation. This is probably amazingly boring for most people here, but here’s a cool example: Blow up Big Buck Bunny in your browser! (You’ll need a modern browser to be able to see this).
The Story will be based of the BBB movie. The squirrel is possessive, and wants to get rid off all other animals from the forest by making traps to get rid of his first arch enemy, The Bird, who doesn’t care about what the squirrel think and get on with his daily life.
- The MovieSquad Audience Award (kids of 8-12 voted in the HAFF school program)
- The HAFF Audience Award (festival visitors voted, with over 40 nominations)
In the next 2 months it looks like the Big Buck Bunny project will be getting a lot more publicity. Ton has had a lot of invitations for festivals and conferences etc, due to the successful release of the BBB project.
Issue 106 of 3D World is themed around free and open-source software. Editor Jim Thacker sent us a few opening spreads and as a bonus, he threw in the full article they published on Big Buck Bunny in issue 103. I love these guys ;-)
