Very nice! The animation is very fluid and energetic. I saw the Blender conference video about the creation of this film. Very impressive that this film was made in just a few weeks. :slightly_smiling_face:

Really nice work with animation and it also doubles as an awesome showcase for the EEVEE.:+1:

I first saw this as part of the blender conference talk. Awesome work!

I loved the style which was shared by the “experimental” shorts leading up to this one. The cartoony, exaggerated movements are beautiful. Here are the other shorts they made while trying EEVEE out.

Here is his talk at the blender conference this year (very interesting):

Journey from Blender Internal to EEVEE

I was fascinated by the rigs and the freedom they offer! I am in the process of learning to rig and animate myself but it seems most tutorials are for rather straightforward characters. I have no idea how you guys supported such extreme mouthshapes for example or made the features free to move around.

Could you elaborate a little on how those things work? If you can link to some resources that explain how to implement such features that would be awesome too. Right now I haven’t been able to find any.

This film has excellent sound design, creative choreography, good cinematography that doesn’t waste motion, and “a Tax Avery sense of humor.” (It’s hard to do absurdity well … but, you sure did it.)

I think that it worked extremely well to use “cartoon eyes” for the main character – and, generally, not so much the other ones – which makes him very expressive while also being (in my mind) a throw-back to traditional cartoon animation. “This is a cartoon.” The way that the characters moved, and the accompanying sound effects, were “straight Tex Avery,” and I mean this as a very high compliment.

I thought it worked very well to have somewhat-stylized characters acting in sets that were more realistically and lavishly rendered. Of course, it was also a great technical demonstration of Eevee’s speed and power.

Lovely anim, i wathed it couple days ago. PS have you guys ever thought about adding tutorials or so?

Wow good work man,

This is amazingly beautiful and I love it. Is it to be continued because the ending really left it at that? Otherwise 5 out of 5 stars. :slight_smile:

Nice. Put a little love in your blend :musical_note:.

This is a good animation. Here is the power of eevee! Many animations will be done like this.
