Music video: B-Side Love Affair by Sy Smith

After seeing a replacer script by Jazzdalek on BlenderArtists forum, i knew that I wanted to try it out: animating using cut-out replacement animation. And i was one of those Blender Heads that used Blender just to play around, i've never done a huge project in Blender, well, this was the project for all that.

For a look behind the scenes, check out this 'Making of' video and read Phetogo's description of the production process.

About the Author

Bart Veldhuizen

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. Love the song.
    Love the video.
    Love the song and the video. Great piece of work to all the artists involved, musical and blendical.

  2. Really good!
    Nice song, and nice beat =)

    What was the budget for this ? I'm asking because I'm into animated videoclips
    too. Producing videos mainly for Hip-hop / Reggae artists.

    By the way, I saw a movie from South Africa, called Jerusalema, I loved it =D
    I'm native from Mozambique, so... we're kind a neighbours =D

    Keep working, good job ;D

  3. Wow, thanks all of you for your kind words.

    The budget for this was $0000. Zip. i just went out with my camera and shot stuff, then i worked on the vfx.

    It may sound strange but i've always wanted to be featured on blendernation, so thank you Bart for making this dream of mine happen.

    To Jahmaica and Jarred: With the advent of films like District 9, I hope south african/african vfx artists continue working hard and keep their dreams alive.

    Keep at it.

    Thank you all
