Work continues on the film, using Blender for our VFX shots as I explained in my last message. I created this breakdown of a shot yesterday and thought it might be productive to send it to you guys and get some feedback. This shot was created with around ten or so hours of work, including color correction, two rounds of rotoscoping, motion tracking, rendering, and finally compositing the Blender export into After Effects and integrating it into the scene. We're using Blender 2.5 Alpha Two, and After Effects for the compositing.
Feedback from the blender community would be great! Also, you can check up on our progress at our production blog.
The short film itself is 11:56 long including credits. I hope to have it done by next Friday, and we'll make sure the movie gets sent to BlenderNation for publication. One thing we want to do, like with the great Blender movies before us, is to release the models we used afterward for people to download and explore.
