A friendship with a top-secret robot turns a lonely girl's life into a thrilling adventure as they take on bullies, evil bots, and a scheming madman. Next Gen, a Netflix Film, launches Sept 7.
Last week the news broke that Tangent Animation created 'Next Gen' - and that this full movie will play on Netflix! I've received confirmation that this is correct + Tangent has offered to provide us some more information about the production (as far as they can - there are obviously restrictions in place here) - you can leave your questions below and we'll make a selection!
Jeff from Tangent Animation writes:
I can confirm or dispel a number of things that have been speculated on, such as Tangent not being the primary production facility for this movie (only storyboards were done outside of our facility), or our use of Blender in our pipeline (we’re effectively 100% Blender, other than plugging in apps in a few areas to supplement departmental workflows).
The budget was also 5x that of Ozzy, for those wondering why there is such a large difference in the quality of the movies. Ozzy bootstrapped our company, and explicit choices were made regarding execution of the artistic on that movie to execute on the movie on that budget.
Let me know what you’d like as backstory/information to supplement your Blendernation article, and I’d be happy to provide what I can.
So you heard the man, folks! What would YOU like to know about creating a Hollywood production in Blender?
