Bart Veldhuizen

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. I didn't know they were working on another film. I'm not surprised, but what happened to the Cosmos Laundromat? I thought that was supposed to be a series?

  2. Looks really great. I love to see how Blender was pushed again to the limit. "To infinity and beyond" - Ah wait, that was another story :)

  3. Technically I won't speak as I haven't seen it yet.

    BUT on the art style side, I'm disappointed to see that they mimicked Disney's style, which is quite frankly becoming really boring (for me, not for the majority it seems). It's cute and all, but I'm tired of all those ever younger adolescent (soon to be baby) princesses with eyes so huge and the rest so tiny even Japanese manga look real in comparison. And an animation which is always looking the same, which consists of exaggerated and twitchy movements, just to make sure each movement, and especially the eyes and mouth, convey even more emotions, because the public cannot understand otherwise... Oh well, I'm probably not the target audience :D

    Why not explore other visual and animation styles? So many cute and stylized styles are possible and already exist, it's such a pity to try to be mainstream when they've got freedom. In the current form, Spring will just be another boring 3d animation to me, like what I can see on TV on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
