Demo for Spanish Children Series


David Rodriguez writes:

I herewith in a very humble way would very much like to share with all of you our very petit animation... which must be considered as a demo or a test. Its main idea is to produce an animated serie for children on tv, as a free open distribution. This is our first step, since we have not got the resources to produce it totally, we are obliged to seek out for sponsors who will be willing to help us out with this idea .  Anyhow, it was done with love and well we hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.

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. Wow, this look *awesome*

    Hope you'll succeed in finding them sponsors,
    and I especially like the thought of it being distributed under a free license!

  2. 2d in blender

    Well done!!! this is great I hope you get the greenlight for this production. 2d is still very popular in broadcasting. Blender could be a great alternative for 2d boon, anime but we need to get the 2d edge problem sorted, is there a coder who is able to set up a 2d edge line/ thickness & colour around individual 3d objects in the materials panel. Animation master has this system but it is very unstable problem. I am aware of the 2d plugin and the 2d edge line in the render panel, these system are not the same as the one in animation master- Please can a coder respond to this- Thankyou.

  3. hey david, felicidades nuevamente...
    hubiera sido un buen extra que incluyeras los subtítulos en ingles antes de mandarlo aquí...

  4. Great job!

    The video is quite entertaining. Although, I have my doubts children will fully understand its contents. At least I did, but I'm not a child anymore :P


    Buen trabajo!

    El video es bastante entretenido. Sin embargo, tengo mis dudas que los niños entiendan completamente su contenido. Por lo menos yo lo entendí, pero ya no soy un niño :P

  5. They are so sweet.

    Although I didn't understand a word either I really enjoyed watching this one.

    I love the idea behind it and all the little ideas how to realize the scenes.

    I really hope you'll find a sponsor for this one, good luck :)

  6. excelente, me encanto el diseño de personajes, la estética, la idea, todo, muy original y de mucha calidad, se noto mucho el compromiso que entregaron en el proyecto. felicitaciónes y ojala pronto reciban apoyo de patrocinadores.

    Excelent, i love the desing of character, the concept, the idea, everything, very original and high quality, it see you compromise a lot with this project, congratulation and hope soon you find suport and some sponsors.

    cheers! ;)

  7. Yes, an article for Blenderart Magazine. I second the motion. David, you have raised the bar in the world community. Congratulations.

  8. Great animation, but what's with the atom bomb? o.0
    I thought it was for children :D

    Other than that - It is terrific ! Congratulations :)

  9. Kudos to David & Co. This not only looks very professional done, it is a very cool concept to begin with (educational series).

    The educational part is very easy to understand even if you (like myself) do not speak the language :-D
    I guess there may be some dialogue or even jokes in there that are lost on me though.

    Best of luck to you getting this sponsored (and maybe even into prime time) - should hopefully not be that hard with the quality of this promo video 8-)


    PS: I'll add my vote to the Blenderart Magazine suggestion.

  10. Bonito trabajo, muy profesional, pero lo de la bomba atomica me parece un poco violento, no ?

    Beautiful work, very professional, but the atomic bomb is quite violent, isn't it ?

  11. Excelente trabajo, como primer proyecto esta perfecto. Yo descubri blender hace algunas horas espero contar con su ayuda para aprender a usarlo.


  12. Sencillamente sublime. Un trabajo excelente.

    Como comentan por arriba, quizá la redacción y el contenido sea excesivo para quienes va dirigido ese estilo de imagen y vocalización. Quizá si las voces fueran más «formales», sin necesidad de cambiar ni la redacción ni los gráficos, se podría enfocar a niños cuya edad sea más acorde al contenido didáctico.

    De cualquier modo, un trabajo exquisito. Enhorabuena :-D

    Too "soon" (2:21 AM) to translate into English. I'm a bit tired :-P

    Saludos amigos!

    estoy muy agradecido y emocionado por los comentarios

    el pequeño gran libro es el resultado de mis experiencias y aprendizaje en la comunidad de usuarios. Mas que un logro personal es el reflejo de una comunidad tan generosa como la comunidad de usuarios de blender.

    He de reconocer muchos errores en este pequeño demo que van desde la grabación de audio hasta el uso del color, nosotros gestamos este pequeño corto como un demo y estamos muy complacidos por la respuesta de todos.

    Hemos visitado algunos organismos y la respuesta ha sido muy positiva, esperamos que este sueño se convierta en realidad.

    Para nosotros es un placer y un honor contribuir con nuestra querida comunidad y estamos dispuestos para cualquier cosa que pueda ser requerida...

    Sorry for my bad English,

    I am very grateful and touched by the comments

    el pequeño gran libro is the result of my experiences and learning in the community of users. More than a personal achievement is a reflection of a community as generous as the user community blender.

    I must admit many mistakes in this little demo from the audio to the use of color, we gestated this little short as a demo and we are very pleased by the response of all.

    We visited some agencies and the response has been very positive and we hope that this dream becomes a reality.

    For us it is a pleasure and an honor to contribute to our beloved community and are ready for anything that may be required ...

    se puede leer un poco del concepto y contenido de nuestro proyecto aqui: por ahora solo en español, espero aherlo en ingles en el transcurso de esta semana (como veran mi ingles es muy malo)

    You can read some of the concept and content of our project here: for now only in Spanish, in English i need help to traslate , but i hope during this week (as you will see my English is very bad)

  15. I don`t understand what the characters were saying, but I must say that it looks pretty good. I like the characters` design and colors. As mentioned before - nice combination of 2D and 3D. Best of luck with finding of sponsors. Cheers.

  16. I liked it a lot.

    I love when people explore new visual possibilities in 3D. Congratulations, and the best of luck in searching for funding. :)

    As some people also noticed, I found the atomic bomb somewhat off.

  17. Valdir de Oliveira on

    Muy bueno! You prove that it is really possible to work with the free softwares and do high quality presentations with them. Congratulations!

  18. Hermoso trabajo. Me ha gustado mucho, sobre todo la combinación de 3D y 2D. ¿Habrán modelos disponibles para bajar para los que estamos aprendiendo a usar Blender?

    Mil felicitaciones desde Colombia.

  19. Leonardo Alviarez on

    Simplemente Felicitaciones!!!

    Excelente trabajo, para los que luchamos cada día por la popularización del Software Libre y la liberación del conocimiento es muy gratificante ver este tipo de trabajo, nos gustaría verlo en la pantalla chica pronto.

    Desde Mérida - Venezuela, deseamos todo lo mejor para este proyecto.

  20. That was great. I too would like to see an article in BlenderArt mag on how it was done.

    For those who don't understand the language, it was an educational piece on various bits of info about the moon. The kids were trying to launch a rocket to it when the older character passed by to explain things like the moons historical affect on man, the phases of the moon, and how it affects the tides and such.

    In the end, it's an uneducated attempt by the kids to try and get to the moon, hence the blast. The nuclear blast certainly seemed extreme to me too. Something along the lines of the rest of the animation would've been more cohesive to me.

    I really like it visually. The particular production process appears like it doesn't strain rendering resources, allowing for a fairly long piece to be made without the need to farm it out.

  21. Lovely work- congrats & thanks for sharing. Nice to see Kator Legaz in the credits, too... his resources sure get around!
