Video: "Mikrobitus - Lovely Mama"


Leonardo Sala created a short video that made me smile on the early Saturday morning.

I've just completed my new animated short: "Mikrobitus - Lovely Mama" totally made with blender. The movie features strange nervous creatures acting in a minimal world. This is the pilot episode of a series of interstitial shorts, featuring the crazy adventures of little, nervous things in a minimal world. Totally made with the open source package Blender.

HD Version available on Vimeo. While you're there, also check out his other animation, 'The Guest' (not made in Blender).

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.

    Hehehe! Waiting to see more of this stuff, indeed! ^_^ Hey, I love the particle animation there. Or is it? The black stuff puffed off is so nice! ^_^

  2. How is this made? especially the main character which only has an outline...
    Anybody figured out how to create this kind of stuff in blender?

  3. Hello everybody! Thanks for your comments. I didn't expect a so huge feedback!
    Some quick replies to some of your questions:

    Yes, the puffs are standard blender particles with a halo material
    The main character is a slightly extruded plain 2D surface.
    I will probably release a making of (not in a short time though, 'cause I'm very busy now).

  4. This is really great. I have been in a real rut lately trying to figure out a way to accomplish the sort of animating I want to do in programs like After Effects, and your work has really opened up the possibilities of Blender for me.

    But enough about me...great job!
