Thanks Maria Bowskill for the fire background vimeo.com/bubblebursting

Kids at the end come from random vimeo videos. Sorry dont remember uploaders.

Birds video by Illuzia.net

I used Blender 3D for Models/animation/compositing
Gimp for textures
Movie Maker to stick scenes together
A bit of VirtualDub as well
Some textures from cgtextures.com

This was my first try on character rigging and animation. There was no storyboard/screenplay so I didnt know how the final video would look until it was finished. It was made by adding one complete rendered shot after another as time went. So it was pain in a black hole for me to finish only 3 minute video as i had to repeat whole process x-times (animate, bake particels and cloth render), even theres not much animation skills needed. At least i learned a lesson that its important to know what you want to do before you start. Next time ill try to do all the animation work first.


thanks for watching

Ask questions, comment, crit, anything you care for.

Cool. Interesting video. )

Thanks for comment Dimetrii!

hey, i watched your whole video, its actually pretty good, especially those birds at the end.

I guess music is not really inviting to watch whole video…Thanks bojo you will get special price for watching the whole clip

Pretty cool actually.

(Although not the version of “Born free” I was expecting!

edit: definitely a sign of age!

pretty damn SICK
