Blue Zoo Animation Studio has just released "Sinking Feeling", a gorgeous short film made primarily using Blender as their main too. The film, made to promote PAPYRUS, a charity preventing youth suicide, is the studio's first full-fledged foray into using Blender in film production after having used it successfully on a commercial.
Extremely proud of our Blender team at @Blue_Zoo for making this masterpiece for @Papyrus_Tweets on #WorldSuicidePreventionDay. Physically sinking into the ground is such a powerful, elegant metaphor to use for an often indescribable struggle. https://t.co/qYyVd51YnH pic.twitter.com/sOxPYFC8Qg
