I've made a short loop for the Anima 2013, Córdoba International Animation Festival, with the origami mascot. I hope you like it. Here, the Anima Festival page and their Facebook page.

And there will be a special program on Open Source tools this year, with great talks, workshops and conferences on Blender, Scribus, Inkscape, Gimp and other great softwares, by the great people of (a collective of designers and artists using or interested in OS software), and I'll give a workshop on 3d character animation with Blender.

And last, but not least, a short film from the project Vacui Spacii, "Texo" is in the official selection of shorts :D


  1. Very nice animation!
    I have heard that Martin is a teacher who is doing a great job teaching Blender 3D and other OpenSource graphics programs. Thank you very much for that!
    Best wishes for the festival!

  2. Wow! Thanks for the compliment, i think that it's the best i can do is encourage people to learn and use OS tools, as a way of say thanks to this great community. ;)

  3. Great little animation! I like it.
    Does anyone have an idea how to animate this kind of stuff (the bird)? Something like folding/unfolding paper etc? I wanted to try something similar. Would be much appreciated! Muchas Gracias :)

    • Well, there are a great script developed by Emu, which flattens a mesh to get a fold & glue papercraft pattern. ;) Then, it cames another python coder, Liero, that made a script to add a bone to every face and facilitates the animation to fold/unfold it. That's it!
      It can be made by hand, but these scripts makes easier the process.
      Here i've used two rigs: one to fold the "Ñandú" and a copy of it, rigged for the walk. :D
