Hungarian Teenage Animation Camp Production: "Newt Eggs"

12

newt-eggs.jpg(Submitted by Kisantal Tibor) Teenagers from a primary and a high school got together with two teachers in an animation camp in Hungary in last summer. Many of them have been dealing with 3D modelling and animation already. Until now they have been working together mainly for farewell movies for graduates wherein they created the special effects. In this camp they have decided to make an animation short about newt eggs with Blender.

Originally character of the newt egg was a small clay figure, which was made for a college meeting as a present. These characters are quite lovable and simple for an animation film.

90% of the scenes where made with Blender. The cartoon-style scenes were made with Moho.

The story: Newt eggs are living in a small planet where the hills are quite particular. Like children, they start to have some fun with the surface of their planet. But does everybody want to play?

The homepage of the film is http://gotepete.netpositive.hu. You can find here some downloadable production files, test animations, dvd quality films and a "making of" short.

Kind regards, Kisantal Tibor from Hungary

  1. Hey that's really cool!
    Good work you guys! I'm really glad to see blender reaching all over the world, but I'm even more happy to see education in the media spreading so far!
    I liked both the 3D and 2D animations
    (I especially liked the 2D one at the end when they're all climbing out of the hole)

  2. A well deserved pat on the back to Kisantal and all involved.

    The music is beautiful, there is actually a complete story, the direction and camera angles are interesting. And all this is manged while keeping the visuals very rudimentary and without "real" dialogue. Good job.

    This also gets full marks from me for the professionalism of the presentation and the website, and (I quote) "Because Hungarian is a human language." :D

  3. Very cute story :D
    I just wonder, whether they talk hungarian or completely random stuff...
    Though.... The bits of hungarian, I heard, already, didn't sound at all like that, so I guess, it's the second, right?

  4. Kram1032, I asked him that question on Blenderartists & he said it isn't Hungarian or any human language, it's just nonsense speech. He said that he hoped people could understand the story regardless of the language.

  5. Moho was a 2D animation software of Lost Marble. http://www.lostmarble.com They joined to e-frontier and the e-frontier changed the name of the software to Anime Studio. If you interested in this wonderful animation software I advise the Hungarian http://www.szoftverbazis.hu/szoftver/index.html?id=XY10. You can find here the version 5.0 of MOHO that equal with new Anime Studio. This is a shareware but you can save your work in the format of flash for example.
