woah! good old times! i can remember this video. it was awesome! thanks for the link.
I remember this project. Even back then, Blender had amazing capabilities for this type of thing, but few took full advantage of them.
Thanks for letting us know that it's available online, and in one video (it was previously in chapters), and many thanks to Shige for uploading it.
That's one cool project.
Excellent sound track, designs and story telling. I could well see a game engine adaptation of this, with cinematics refreshed to today's blender standards. It's already nice as it is though.
Best post ever! Shigeto is a legend, the new generations should definitely know about him. He was one of the original blender gods, him and Dickie, I looked up to them while learning blender ages ago.
Still one of the most impressive blender films i have seen, pushing its limits.
From what i remember, the blend files were also published once all the 'chapters' were done. I might even have them still.....
a lot of ideas here!
that's all for me
I remembered this one. Great stuff for its times.
Blender didn't had stuffs such as Raytracing, AO and nodes at that time... so the results looked abit different..
Once I got used to the style, the story drew me in. Somehow this post-biologic world devoid of humans got to me. It somehow reminded me of Clarke's "The City and the Stars"
A demonstration about how, with a good story telling plan, limitations on software, or charachter animation skills, are not a key issue.
A must of blender annals (it's said like so? xD) without doubt.
It was pretty primitive as far as textures and animation goes. I think that's obvious.
I'm curious though, was this because blender was capable of no better years ago, or because it was created by a single aspiring artist? Whatever the case, it was enjoyable enough to hold my attention for the full length. This film is greater than the sum of it's parts. Very good.
Whoa, sweet memories. Shige was a true blender god. Amazing what he created with the limited capabilities of blender at that time: "You can use a helicopter to get on top of Mt.Everest, but it's more fun to climb up there"
Is this the guy who did the Ka-Ra art book? I always wanted to see that book in person.
The titles are set in the same font as the Sintel logotype!
