Movie Project: Reversion


An awesome trailer for a community-powered movie project!

The Magic Movie Machine describes itself as:

A small team made up mostly of Computer Graphics Non-Professionals, students, and hobbyists who "jam" together to learn about storytelling, graphics, games, film, and animation. We welcome you to our journey.

REVERSION is the first 11-minute animated film from hobbyist writer and film director Giancarlo Ng. The film also represents the first film project effort by The Magic Movie Machine collaborative animation team. The team was formed on January 10, 2010 and for many of its members, REVERSION represents their first foray into Computer Generated animation.

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. Looking great. I only think that you guys could be a bit more careful with the combo darkness + shading + few/tiny light spots. It has potential to make the thing look like old CG, IMO.

  2. Waw ! Really perfect ! ! !  

    Maybe one remark ... probably it's only MY feeling, but  ... it goes verrrrrrrrry fast. You know, I'm not that young anymore, a bit slower would give me more time to absorb - and to enjoy - what you show me.  Now I must pause the trailer all the time and return :-)  

    The sneaking robot in the beginning moves a little bit to straight to my feeling. Okay, it's a robot, and he is sneaking, but ... I would prefer some smoother look. On the other hand, the robot in front of the TV displays moves just perfect. Subtle small movements, very nice. I like that. 

    Forget the criticism, this is absolutely great stuff !  I'm eager to see more !  10/10 for the great team !

    "non-professionals"? :D Guys, don't be so shy! OK, it's not "Rose" but definitely "tells" more pleasant words about your skills.
