Colin Levy (effstops) has done it again.Â Not only has he made another great film, but he's also posted a greatÂ video entitled "Breakdown/Overview of a VFX Shot in Suburban Plight."Â This overview is what Colin presented at Siggraph at the Open Source Pavillion to show what Blender can do.Â Bart never got a chance to film Colin in action so we are lucky to have the overview available to us!
From Colin's site about the movie:Â
I've been working on [the movie]for almost two years - shooting and reshooting, developing the cg elements, editing and animating, etc.. If I had known it was going to take so long I probably would never have started. But in any case, I'm really happy with the way it turned out, and above all, I'm just glad it's finally finished!
From Colin's site about the tutorial/overview:
This is basically an outline of the process of creating a CG character in Blender, and bringing that character through the full operation of animating, lighting, rendering, and compositing.
Colin has also already started a thread for comments and questions over at BA.
This is not only some great Blender work (modeling, rigging, animation), but also some great film work too.Â So watch the film, then check out the vfx overview to get your learn on!
