Hi everyone,

some weeks ago, we had a trainee, named Tristan Salzmann, for one week in our Studio. Together we produced a short funny actionfilm called „Blentrix“. As you can guess, its a parody of „Matrix“ just with Blender. Unfortunately we didn't finished the film during this week. So we worked the last few weeks to finish it – and here it is!

The video was filmed with the Canon 5D Mark II. All the 3d work was done in Blender. The compositing was done in Adobe After Effects and the editing and the sound editing in Adobe Premiere.

The two videos have english subtitles!

So have fun!

Blentrix – Introduction

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 ;-)


  1. Ha, I've figured out the Suzanne ending. Very funny and nicely done! Too bad it's only understandable for blender users. Maybe next time try to do something for the wider audience ;-)

    • ... or Blenvatar, or Blender Trek, or Blender Wars, the Blendinator, Total Blender...

      Could be the start of a whole new genre!

  2. Hi folks!
    I like the basic Idea, and I think this short film is nicely done. However, to me it still looks like either a test or work in progress. That's probably because you use basic 3D shapes (for attacks etc.) during the whole film - which might be intentional, but lets the whole down in my eyes.
    Try to unleash the real power of Blender!
    Anyways, good job and keep going! :)

    • Yes thats true, but it should just be a internship-project for one week. First we wanted to finish it in this one week - but it takes a little longer.
      I even though to myself, with this idea you could do an a lot more complex and interesting movie. But for this internship it was really much more than ok!
      You could do something like that:

    What we can learn from what happened: never use a lowpoly mesh in an ending sequence, it might be broken from inside :D

  4. Very funny, but I did not see any subtitles on either of the videos. Good job my German is just about good enough to understand most of the "making of" video.
