This was my entry to the 2008 Suzanne festival which unfortunately did not qualify. Tough competition and excellent finalists.
Except for my OS which is Win2k, all other software I used was open source. Modeling, Rigging, Animation, Render, Compositing, Editing and Audio Mix were done in Blender. Gimp for 2D work. Additional audio processing done on Audacity. Music clips and sound elements from SoundSnap. VirtualDub for audio dubbing.
Over half of this was done 3 weeks prior to the deadline of submission which I missed(thanks to macouno for accepting my entry even if it was over a week late.)
Anyway I’ve polished it a little more since then and decided that it’s done or else it’ll
never be done Have to move on and make a better one. I’m sure next year will be an even tougher contest.
Here’s the link and some screen caps.
