New Blender Cloud Project: Glass Half


Two amateur art critics meet in a gallery and argue passionately about the pieces they see, causing chaos for everyone else, until finally they find a piece on which they can agree...

The Blender Institute is preparing for their next project, a short movie done in three months. As always, if you have a Blender Cloud account you can witness the entire process.

Announcing a new open movie project for the Blender Cloud: Glass Half!

Over the next 3 months the Blender Foundation will produce a new ~3 minute cartoon short with a simple story, snappy animation and rendered in a non photo-realistic style. The focus will be on short form storytelling, good design and clear animation.

The project will be directed by Beorn Leonard, designed by Sarah Laufer and during the production phase, will involve the whole crew at the Blender Institute.

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. That's great news!
    I was hoping for a quick, simple and cartoony Open Movie Project by the Blender Institute for quite a while and here it is. :)
    Good luck with the project!
