Andy Goralczyk showed an early teaser for his Creature Factory DVD last October at the Blender Conference in Amsterdam. The audience was wowed but the project remained a bit of a mystery for the rest of the community. Until now - Andy has posted the BConf video on YouTube. Enjoy!
Please keep in mind that this video is the result of some *very* early experiments. The final product may be completely different!
Q: Can you already give an indication when the DVD can be expected?
A: Unfortunately that's a bit unpredictable. as soon as I can find some time (probably after peach in late april) I can go back to recording and dvd mastering. but I dont quite know how much I have to re-edit the content... blender has changed quite a bit... some information might be outdated already. I need some quiet time to review everything.
Q: Do you have background information on the project somewhere (like what people will find on the DVD etc)
What I already have is a 5 hour time-lapse (hopefully with commentary) showing the complete creation of a series of blender shots from start to end. In addition there is a collection of in-depth tutorials about several aspects of the process, such as modeling, materials, UV unwrapping, lighting, compositing. All these are created with the intention to be used in a slightly larger scale project.
Over the last couple of months I also learnt a *lot* more... so I obviously would like to incorporate that into the collection. how this is going to happen, I dont know yet.
