I’ve been thinking on something lately I’d like to share with you.
I would like to start making short films with Blender and hand them to festivals. I’m a filmmaker; I’ve written and directed several (flesh’n bone) short films, but I think I’ve reached a point in which I want to move on to other types of expression. 3D is what I want, and I love Blender.
Short conventional films are OK, but it’s quite frustrating how (lack of) money stops filmmakers from developing their talents.
So, my idea: I’d like to set up a team of Blender artists in a project that involved 3D film production.
Distance shouldn’t be a problem: we can be spread all over the world. Just a little bit of coordination will be necessary.
Animators, modellers, texture creators, plugin programmers, etc. we could join and make a good coordinated team. The main aim: to learn from one another and have fun (that should be a golden rule).
The idea is to produce non-lucrative work, under Creative Commons licenses, and to make more and more challenging works over time.
What do you guys think about this? Would you join?
