Hello from Sofia / Bulgaria!
I’m here teaching at Tosmi two blender classes back to back, and having a great time. We had a great Siggraph experience, Jarred, Fateh and I spent many hours driving to the conference, hanging at the blender booth, meeting all the groovy blenderfolk (you know who you are!) and then midnight hacking on the teaser.
After returning back home, we had a scant few days to re-do some of the glitchy bits, make a ‘director’s cut’ teaser, render, and then rush out here to the EU before encoding it for your viewing pleasure.
Without further ado I present… the second teaser:
Credits go to Gianmichele (character animation) Jarred (massive amounts of textures, modelling, and matte painting), Jamal (modeling and materials), Jan (awesome music and mix), Thomas (awesome SFX), Colin Levy! (who kindly tweaked the comp on one of the shots at the blender booth), Kursad (texture painting) and Jean-Sebastian (modeling). Thanks to Chris, Fateh, and the folks at the animation meeting for the great feedback/ideas/critique. I did a little bit of everything, and am responsible for anything bad. (edit: can’t believe I didn’t mention redo’s awesome roach concepts)
Oh and finally, for the masochists: a high rez ogg video link : HD teaser2
PS: I’ve of course updated the media page with the second teaser.
EDIT: added .mp4 version to the video for safari users
