I’m a producer/director and I’m making a history documentary for the BBC. I’m also a Blender user and have been teaching myself to use it over the past 6 months. I’m really excited about the possibilities of using Blender for broadcast graphics and this seems like the perfect opportunity. The sort of budget we have rules out using a big CG house hence I’m thinking of doing as much as I can with Blender.
There’s going to be more graphics work than I can handle on my own, so we are looking for a reasonably experience Blender user, (UK, preferably London based), who would be interested in working on the project. It will probably be 4-6 weeks full time in Oct / Nov - rates negotiable.
The style of graphics we’re planning will involve combining elements into live action, so experience of camera tracking and compositing would be useful.
Has anyone else used blender in a factual television project? I’d be really interested in any experiences.
The documentary is being made by Ballista Media
