Check out "Infinite Jest," a video by Manuel QuiÃ±ones [manuq.]Â I asked him a few questions over e-mail about his animation:
Banor Thank you for your submission!Â I have a few questions about it:
QuiÃ±ones Hello, thanks for the interest in the film!!
Banor What software (besides Blender) did you use to create Infinite Jest?
QuiÃ±ones I did the last editing using the non-linear editor Cinelerra. There I added the sound and mounted the 3d renders and the photographies. Because besides 3d in blender, I used another animation technique, sand animation. Actually, it is cornmeal not sand :)
Banor How long did it take you to complete the project?
QuiÃ±ones It was made in about one week, for the montage II class I attended at my film institute this semester.
Banor What were some inspirations for the film?
QuiÃ±ones It is vaguely inspired in the short story called Las lÃneas de la mano (The Lines Of The Hand), from the writer Julio CortÃ¡zar.
The title is a cite from Hamlet.
Banor What did you learn from the project?Â Did you conquer any big hurdle during the project that helped you to gain more knowledge about Blender, other software you used, or film making in general?
QuiÃ±ones I wanted to go one step further in my knowledge about blender, doing an animation with more than one take, using libraries for the models, sets, and actions. Then I opted to do super-simple characters and tried to keep everything simple, only two lights, a minimalistic environment.
Thanks again for your attention :)
