  1. Form a visual standpoint, this is the most complex, dynamic, massive-action-that-blows-the-audience-away animation that ever came out of Blender.

    This yet again proves that a skilled crew is able to produce world class shots that equal blockbusters like Transformers, Pixar (BBB) etc.

    Respect to the artists! Respect to the Blender developers!

  2. Here we come Michael Bay!

    didn't get the title though: "Benny's fuel and repair"? Looks like the opposite...

  3. Really well done, but way to short. The viewer is just coming to terms with whats happening when it abruptly cuts to an ad. Not cool.

    But I guess the 7 seconds of action we saw were good.

  4. Looks like this is going to be way better than the project Ton is going to present at the blendconf2008. ;)

  5. Wireless_Syrup on

    ....Wow. Transformers quality 3d footage. Amazing.

    Animations from small scale studios like this, who use great open source software, are really doing some amazing things. I can't wait until the full video comes out. With some luck, large production studios will take notice of these short films, because blender is getting up there as a major contender.

  6. I can't help myself watching this over and over!

    I really would like to know how clips like these influence sales curve of commercial 3D software (can you hear the bomb dropping sound sync to the curve going down? AHHHyes....)
    It surely is a long-term process, but I really think that in ten years most artists will have grown up with blender, and if blender manages to be more and more interchangeable (import/ export), I think it will be in most pipelines.

  7. After watching this I feel SICK! Uttersly sick and intimidated lol.

    INCREDIIIBBLLLEEE work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm still struggling to breathe.

  8. This bears no resemblance to the Transformers movie. I can easily recognize both robots, and I can see what's going on! :'D
    Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all night! Tip your waitress!

  9. cool animation.. but that ad thing or copyright thing.. was so NOT COOL!.. seriously don't so that it ruins everything.. come up with some other way of putting your name on it..

  10. No, Kirado! Giant copyrights are the EPITOME of cool! And a necessary evil! Evil is the new black.

    This clip was actually intended as a recruitment clip to be used to see if we could get a few more good folks on our team to help with the visual effects (In fact, if anyone wants to throw this following link into the article, that would be RAD!).

    But yeah! To find out more visit this link;

    You guys are all epic! I'm so hyped at the positive response!

  11. I'm extremely interested in the quality of the actual animation in the short. Any more excerpts?
    Looking polished and very exciting though!

  12. That's freakin sweet! Very awesome visuals. The music seems very
    anti-climatic which seems to hinder the energy of the scene. I hope
    that will be switched out with something more engaging for the final
    because I want to l fully love it.

  13. The music is just crap I wrote :P. Fingers and ears infinitely more talented than mine are working on a pretty darn sweet soundtrack. If I'd been thinking I probably would have deleted the music before exporting the clip... but whatevah.

  14. The artists at Spiral Productions LLC are indeed grateful for the positive response to this clip. As Ian and Dolf mentioned, the clip is intended to help us recruit some more help to complete this full length feature we call Project London. If you want to stay in touch (it's gonna take a few more months to finish it), here are a couple websites to bookmark. (soon to be our marketing site) (news for cast and crew)

    We are pleased and proud to be part of the Blender revolution.

  15. I still can't get over how cool this is, and it's such a small fraction of what's going on.

    Can't wait to see what the response will be like when people see the whole scene.

    To anyone thinking about joining the team: I have never had so much fun working on a project. Also, it's a fantastic opportunity to expand your Blendering knowledge.

    And seriously, who wouldn't want to make giant robots? :)


  16. NICE MODELS!!!
    I'm more use to Gundam mechs and Shirow with a humanoid layout, with a head and limbs but this looks so sweet too! nice animation! very mechy ^^ keep it up
