Movie Project: The Filthy Spoon


filthyspoon.jpgCory Taylor and Jeremiah Warren are working on an animated short film called 'The Filthy Spoon'. It'll be produced almost completely in Blender and while they're working on it they're maintaining a production journal. It's interesting stuff to follow.

Doug is an antique silver spoon who belongs in a tableware collection. One day Doug strays away and is lost and forgotten. He eventually resurfaces and longs to join his friends in the collection again...but he has collected much dirt and grime over the years of being away and he must cleans himself before re-entering the group. To do this Doug must reach a canister of silver polish....which is frightfully high up on a fridge.

Doug is bound and determined to reach the silver polish and join his old comrades...but many challenges await him if he is going to succeed...if he is able to overcome those challenges, that is. Will Doug succeed, or will he fail? You will have to wait until the fall of 2008 to find out!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. The first thing I noticed about the poses of the spoon was that in real life it's really hard to bend a spoon right in the middle of the handle. I think this guy should take a short inspiration session by taking up spoon-bending. My ex room mate was really in to it for a little while and we found that spoons make really strange shapes when you bend them and that after they get bent once, they don't quite bend back to the same original shape.

  2. Hey,

    Man, this project looks cool. I am constantly amazed at the quality of work that Blender is capable of. I am definitely looking forward to seeing the finished project in the fall of this year. Stay cool.
