"Lisl and the Lorlok", the first American feature-length film to use only Blender for animation over live action, premiered at the Idyllwild International Film Festival along with a number of other great shorts, featurettes, and films. Out of 11 feature-length (over 60 minutes) films, our film won Best Male Actor and Best Picture! Shown are (left to right) Stephen Savage, a noted director who hosted the event, Ignatius Fishcer, our director, Conor O'Farrell, a famous lifetime actor who presented the award, and Brian Dillon, the screenwriter.
It was such fun to see the film, and hear the audience gasp as my Lorlok attacked our female lead, Lisl (played by Katerina Fischer) or moan as it descended onto Grandma (played by Bobbye Louise Ames). In addition to the director and screenwriter, Derek Nickell (who did the ghost effects) and myself were interviewed by Red Rocket TV (will be shown on Time-Warner cable) and got to talk about using Blender and our process. I gave a great shout-out to the Blender Foundation and revealed my next plans :)
