Jeremiah W. has created aÂ video for the skinit.com 60 second commercial contest. He used Blender to render and animate the 3D models, as well as some other elements. The actual electronic models were purchased on the web, "as my skills and patience did no allow for the quality that I could buy ;-) (plus I got them at a really good price)". All of the texturing, animation, lighting, and rendering were done in Blender.
"The scene with the mass of electronics was done by layering a render of the device on a 2D plane...then duplicating the planes a number of times. I don't know how many planes were in that shot...but it was enough to slow Blender down quite a bit. Anyway, hope you like the commercial, and if you do, please rate and comment, your feedback is one of the ways in which the commercials will be judged.
Also, the winning commercial of the contest *may* be aired on US television. In the past Skinit.com has aired commercials on MTV and ESPN, as well as local stations, so this could be a lot of "exposure" for Blender!"
