About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

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 ;-)

    this looks really quality.  Something I would expect to see in the 'best animated shorts of 2012' reel, in a theater...

  2. It looks really great, you can feel the story behind this already, extremely promising trailer! Nice animation and desgind, just wow!

    Wow! Great! Reminds me "The hedgehog in fog" cartoon. And this trailer is pretty intriguing :) What he'll see? An angel's duck.. or some duck's memories? Or... something easy like little duckies that will get him to decide not to kill these ducks? Or his son will... turn into a duck? :D

  4. Very good! The (most) important part - the *mood*, *expressed* in colors, shapes, textures, camera, and (especially) movements. Many art work today is moodless... Sometimes art work may be forbidden to have a mood, because it will make it out of the big standard (which says: have *this* mood, and not this). I really like this trailer! Please always express mood with your art!

  5. Wow.  That looks fantastic.  I'm especially impressed by the quality of the animation, which is something that often gets skimped on in short film projects.  And the style is fantastic.

    This is looking great!
    Just found your short movie "Skhizein" at YouTube.
    Love your style. Can't wait to watch "Palmipedarium"

  7. I can´t wait for this! His last short film was amazing and I didn't have a clue back then that he was involved with the Blender community. I am so excited for this!

  8. Hi there, I'm the technical director of this film (and the two first too). Only Palmipedarium was done with blender, so it is normal thaht you didn't noticed anything for Skhizein.

  9. This is inspiring!  I want to know more about the lookdev process.  Great character design/visual style, and the animation itself looks excellent!
