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. Very nice.

    The animations where a bit STIFF though, like "move-there-to-move-here-stop!", but the
    environment and characters where absolutely wonderful, good job!

  2. i like it all: story, models, animation, textures, lights, music and sounds...
    but it's so sad, poor little chick!
    please, do another clip with their jailbreaking! tell me that they are alive!

  3. It seemed the upper beak of the chickens moved independently of the head. Although that could be what your going for.

    But very well polished, very good modeling/texturing. Really liked the opening shot.

  4. Very good soup... Hum, I mean very good movie ! Nice animation, and great work on the models. The sound track is also excellent. Congratulations ! High quality level.

  5. Some movie should be banned from the moment they are made...
    And often wonder how come traditional 2d Animation are still very well appreciated...
    By watching I completly understand why...

  6. Perhaps I'm not so perceptive, but I don't see what's so bad about the animation. Seems pretty natural-flowing to me.

    Nice work.

  7. I have seen and analyzed this short quite a few times. It is simply great....the story did not impress me that much I must confess...but the quality of your modeling, rigging and animation made me quickly think that I still must learn quite a lot. I am missing something good. Hope you can share some of your technical background about lighting and fluent fact the whole would be a treasure for me.

    Goo Luck!

  8. Thank you for the nice feedback for my animation,
    and thanks to the moderators for putting it here!

    I know about some issues and flaws, which you mentionned, but I'm still learning and hoping that every next animation will be better. There was a point where I had to finish it despite the bad things, took me too long anyway (2 years)

    pixnolve - I know that it's far from beeing perfect, but I don't understand why it should be banned from the beginning?

    blenderguy2008 - technical background about light you can find a few making-ofs of other works on my homepage, I use pretty much the same methods always (with the difference that this time there was no GI nor AO). About movements, I recommend you the book "The Animator's Survival Kit" by Richard Williams, I learned a lot from it.
