(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
