hello fellow blenderheads,
finally it’s done. mindfields, my 5 mins short movie is finished and uploaded!
you can download the movie here. i really tried to keep the quality nice so the file is fairly large. you need at least DivX 5.0.3 to watch it.
as the site says, mindfields shows what happens in your head, how your inner ecological system is being destroyed and opens the way for evil and madness. all you see in the movie has to be seen in a metaphorical way.
about the look & feel of the movie: i was trying to make it look real, in certain aspects but also unrealistic. for mindfields i really tried to push blender to the maximum or particle rendering, lighting and modeling detail.
if you are not sure about downloading, have a look at these screenshots from the movie:
i only have to add at the end that it was both, funny and painful to keep working on such a complicated piece of artwork. the 2 months of production and finally the final 2 week rush into the finishing line… long nights and days of blending… many computer crashes and backups… long, overnight rendering… i have learnt so much during production. finally seeing that now mindfields is being delivered out of my mind and into yours makes me feel like returning home after a long journey.
thanks to derek mounce aka tekobyte who provided the webspace on his site http://www.elementi-motus.com until my own server is back up for working with larger files.
the music is taken from the game myst3exile [and another game i cant quite remember %| ]
i hope you enjoy the short!
