Samurai vs. Velociraptor Short Film


Lutz writes:

Hello! After using Blender mostly in my day job I finally managed to finish a new hobby project. The idea had been floating around in my head for years but I never got around to it. Originally this was also a camera test for my new Panasonic GH6, which we shot during early summer. I wanted to have this short released before Jurassic World Dominion came out. Alas, life and work got in the way and it took me this long to finish it. There are still a lot of small things I would want to refinde but it was time to let go. I hope you have fun watching!

The raptor model is by Jean-yan BABOIS and I got it from Blender Market. I have to say it is a really nice model although there are some small problems with the rig.

  1. A good video...but...

    unnecessary violence...
    I do not support violence against animals, whether they are real or extinct…
    This encourages our children to believe that animals are enemies.

    For these situations use zombies…
    They were created for this...

    • Zombies or dinosaurs, they dont' exist at the moment. Like samurai.
      And yes, if a dinosaur was here you've to consider it as an enemy, because you can suppose you are food for it.
      Anyway, we're talking about vfx job, so... great job, i think the shot colud be more ironic :)

  2. Nice, tensive, well done! Unexpected end too. (Should I say 'funny'?) :-)

    Indeed, the one-person projects take up a lot of time, much more than expected... :-)
    It takes a lot of perseverance to finish something, respect!

    • Thank you! I'd say most of the credit goes to the creator of the model, Jean-yan BABOIS on BlenderMarket. But I'm happy with how the animation, lighting and compositing turned out for these shots as well.
