Leaf blower


Thomas Braun is back with another cutout animation video (see his previous work here). I had to watch this one a few times before I got the joke. Maybe that's just because it's still early and I didn't have enough coffe yet ;-)

Fun with Blender, particles and a leaf blower :)

620 frames, renderd with Cycles via Renderstreet. It was my first testing of a renderfarm and it worked very fast and comfortable. I used their Add-on for Blender so it was very easy to get things done. My old GTX470 would need about 40 hours for this task ...


  1. that leaf blowers are a ridiculous idea :)

    Would've loved to have been a fly on the way when someone marketed that idea.... right up there with selling a refrigerator to an eskimo.

  2. @??????? ??????
    Maybe your loudspeakers were off while watching? Without sound this video doesn't make any sense ;)
    Bart's interpretation is quite right - this guy is only happy, when his leaf blower makes a lot of noise - and honestly, i suspect that real leaf blower guys in the parks are ticking in the same way. Maybe they have a noise switch at their infernal machines - one for silent and one for apocalypse and i guess they all choose "apocalypse" ;)

    Mankind is very talented in inventing ridiculous things ;)
