Project Heist is Blender's latest Open Movie project, focusing this time on achieving photorealism and high production value in an animated short resembling the bombastic game trailers we all know and love. As always, the project's production is open and can be followed over the Blender Studio website for the price of a monthly subscription, which supports the production of these movies and the content that comes along with it.
