This video shows how to model, texture and light a rocket. It is mostly beneficial to new Blender users, but it does go through the entire process of creating a simple scene.
The entire length of the video is 20 minutes. But the video is accelerated 4x the speed. If you have some time to spare it might be worth checking out. Even in simple things like this you can catch a glimpse of something new.
I'd also like to point out the good bit of info that Bart gave us in a previous post, that you can also download these videos from the Google Video page (look for the â€˜Download' button) as MP4, but you can also download the Flash movie file (*.flv) using VideoDL. (You can play .flv files with VLC). Also, using VLC you can slow down the playback speed and watch everything at a reasonable rate.
