Blender used in the ICC Women's T20 Opening Ceremony

I was contracted by a large production company to create a 30-second animated intro for the ICC Women's T20 World Cup Opening Ceremony. With just over 9 days to complete, I took full advantage of the Eevee rendering engine to produce a dynamic sequence that was broadcast to an estimated audience of over 1.5 billion viewers on 21st February 2020.

I had never used Blender 2.8 before this project and to my delight, found the process to be intuitive and lightning-fast thanks to Eevee!

Here's the official opening video:

  1. Thanks Geoff! I should clarify that I have been using Blender since 2010. I had been holding off on stepping from 2.79 since the interface and shortcuts had changed quite a bit and never had the time to make the transition. When I landed this job I knew I would have to use Eevee to drastically speed up my render times which it did in a big way!
