Video: Golden Bank


A rather trippy music video by Set Hallström, to 'Golden Bank' by Mexican producer Franky Fresco. Set provides ample credits to the creators of all the models he used in this video.

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.


      • Thanks alot for breaking the ice @lawrencedoliveiro:disqus <3

        I would like to think that the srangeness comes from my relation to my own n00byness. Instead of fighting against my lack of technical kowledge, i took advantage of it. Such as the typical fireflies. I noticed that they almost always had a stronger value than 1, hence with a glare node, they become sweet sparkles. And then of course, the music. Tight music/audio fx makes everything look better :)

        @BlenderNation:disqus MANY many thanks for sharing this! Thanks to you, the stats went bananas!!! I really think (and hope) this will help Franky Fresco get his message thru! <3

        • ps. ^^^ i wrote that i "noticed" arte facts such as firflies... blabla.... But really, i have been _TOLD_ in various tutorials side-talking LOL :) I enjoy that you underlined the credits @BlenderNation:disqus , and i wish i had been even more desciplined as to keep track of all the tutors.... :(

    Patriotic! :) I like some moments very much but the whole movie can be improved. You can place it in BlenderArtists forum in WIP section and ppl will give you some good (better than mine) advices.
    The ending is great. BTW, how did you've made that strange "refractions" those are changing with rythm at the end? Was it made in Compositor?

    • Haha! Thank you! I desire to think that your definition of "partiotic", is the same as my definition of "globomatriotic" <3 It's not a girl, it's a sexy techno-robot. B^)
      My biggest weekness at this moment is the video sequencing :/ This is my final exam for my last years study, because of what you mention, i only got 7/10 points at streetsoul university. I decided to put it in the "Finished Work" section of BA <3
      The ending is: a heavliy destorted "lens distortion" filter on the image, filtered thru an alpha-layer of the shape/mask :)
