Another film from Blender, this time probably more for older audiences - a short but touching story of a girl who will do anything for her pet, which turns out to be a dragon.
Short but very nice animation with touching moments. Certainly not for small children. The film is in English, but we have added letters to some languages (the film has so many subtitles that I had to report an error causing the list of subtitles to go beyond the screen).
I've got a big problem with this Blender thing. Perhaps because this is the first animation that shows its possibilities, but in my opinion it's a lack of a certain idea for itself. That's why this movie gets quite average ratings (72% according to Google).
The story is about two people - Proog and Emo, who travel together in a mechanized building full of traps, which is an interesting test of Blender's abilities, but from the film itself it doesn't present much in my opinion. Animations such as Big Buck Bunny or Caminandes are interesting, funny and imaginative. I don't know what to say about this film.
Maybe you can write something about it, you can watch it free on Intinte Media VOD platform :)
Caminandes is a series (for now) of three short animated films (1-3 minutes) telling the story of a llama who has a problem with overcoming obstacles. We think that traffic is not a problem - especially on a straight road, and as you can see it's not true ;)
The whole story is presented in a humorous scenery, with very nice graphics and good sound. If it were a full-length movie, it would be very cool.
But you can still watch it, from 5 minutes of life it lasts ;)
In the meantime, we are preparing two more movies. Of course, both for free and available on our platform! :-)
Enjoy the show!
Big Buck Bunny is a 10-minute film created by Blender Foundation. Its aim is (apart from presenting a great film) to present the source tools, including Blender.
The story tells the story of a day in the life of "Big Buck Bunny", a big rabbit that is attacked by 3 squirrels, and this one comes up with a plan to punish them.
Since the project is to promote systems for creating graphics, films and so on, everything is on a very high level from the graphic point of view.
You can watch the video on Intinte Media VOD for free - https://vod.intinte.org/player.php?movie=Big%20Buck%20Bunny
I have been working on an open and free (from freedom) VOD project for some time now. Today I can present you the draft version ;)
So far, there are two movies, quite short ones. But generally there are more of them (to be added):
Classical films may be a problem, because if they are in the public domain (e.g. Night of the Living Dead), then nobody knows if I'm going to jail everywhere or not :P But I'm a little ahead of the facts.
So far, there are two animations from the Blender Foundation.
Soon at Zapread I will present my new project (I hope you like it) - which, by the way, will be connected with a series of entries about films ;)
A long time ago I decided to download an old movie under Public Domain license from Wikipedia for testing and torture it in the form of automatic solutions that would improve some things.
He was enlisted for improvements:
- Imagemagick to scale and improve the contours of film frames
- VapourSynth to interpolate the frame rate to 60 FPS.
- Colored by ... https://github.com/richzhang/colorization
Of course it's a tech-demo, but it shows the direction in which the improvement of films, especially the classic ones, from the 30s to the 60s can take place.
For years, the superhero movies market was dominated by Marvel, who knew how to make a good movie that people would like. The DC universe was a long time behind, although of course there were high quality films, most of their films are considered to be of poor quality.
However, it seems that the bad streak of DC is beginning to be overcome. The productions are finally beginning to enjoy popularity and the new Joker movie shows that there is great potential in DC source materials.
Joker's film focuses on the story of a man who becomes a bad person through a sick society and life problems. The film shows us that there are chances that the Joker (some kind of equivalent) can appear today or tomorrow on the streets of your city.
End of information, go to the cinema ;)
I liked the movie, I recommend you go to the movies. The only thing you can complain about (but maybe I didn't understand something) is an unclear theme ... but spoilers ;) However, the film is considered to be the best film of 2019 and it is quite possible - it is impressive. Great acting role, great mood created by appropriate scenery, music - manipulating the audience!
Just go to the cinema!
