Ooh, that's a pretty gender bender. I mean, render blender. No, wait, blender render.

Was this rendered with Cycles? It's very grainy/noisy, especially in the DoF. But other then that it is really nice. Quite impressive animation and hair simulation and rendering.

Okay, was having trouble with buffering like Garp, saw the whole thing now. It's great work... but what does it mean?

Clearly the Ginger balls guy is an angel and... that's all I could get.

If not the ability to make something like this, I would just like the imagination to THINK of something like this! loved it. Looking forward to further parts ...assuming they're coming.

As a short I didn't really like it.

As a "ooh, look what blender can do" pimping video, it served it's purpose.

^agree, and well said^

How many "special scripts/plugins" were used? Is it regular download me and do this blender or is it "I'm a souped up version created by insane blender freaks".

I agree mostly. It is pretty much a tech-demo for Blender rather than an awesome short. I didn't really like the dialogue, although the story is somewhat interesting.

There were no special plugins used, however they did have to develop quite a few new tricks for this. The features added for the short are now in the main Blender release, or awaiting the next release. The branch was called "Gooseberry", and you can download it, although it's pretty much the same as the stable branch.

I do think it's a bit of a shame they, firstly, started with an attempted suicide, then they used the word, "Fuck." Not a good move. And, finally, they introduced pseudo Buddist-Christian elements, with an "angel" represented as the biggest pussy imaginable. I'm not religious, obviously, but seriously, why do they always represent holy types as such wimps? And this guy had ginger hair to boot.

These guys have the skill to create something that would rival pixar and dreamworks. I want to see them do that.

You have summed up what disappointed me about it.

The sheep could have just jumped in the first place. Adding profanity means it's aimed at adults. I would have rather have seen a Pixar style script.

The entire time while watching it, his ginger hair made me want to weep.

I guess the style depends on the motive of the group that made it.. If it's a tech demo for Blender, they can go to that dark humor area without hurting themselves too much. I mean they are pitching 3D software (or so I figure that is the point).

If they are trying to push a feature movie, then the use of that dark humor and profanity aren't smart because they are losing a larger demographic to gain more interest from a smaller one.

Hefst - It's all fun and games until the ginger steals your soul.
