View Full Version : REVERSION - 11 minute Blender animated film (coming soon!) and more

03 March 2012, 12:47 AM
Hello everyone!

After what has seemed like a significant amount of time used studying the craft, experimenting, and formulating solutions to various problems, we believe now is the time for us to begin sharing with the community at-large the imminent arrival of "REVERSION" - a new 11-minute animated film created entirely with Blender.

You can learn more about "REVERSION" at our official movie blog ( . This is not necessarily to promote the film (it is not yet finished). But, it is only at this time, when we feel we have learned enough to be able to talk to others about the experience, that we decided now was the time to reach out to the community.

For all purposes, "REVERSION" is a student film through and through. We did it primarily because we did not know how.

In particular, I am aware that many members of this forum are not only curious about Blender's production capability, but I also see frequently there are people who ask how they can make an animated film. This is our way of helping to share what we learned, and maybe to also serve as the medium for us sharing the challenges and the solutions. Because no matter how well one plans, there are challenges. And not just technical ones, but human ones as well, such as when an artist you were relying on suddenly suffers a debilitating wrist injury...

The blog will be updated in the coming days with more material. So this is an open invitation to our peers here on this forum to go there, check it out, and join us as we take the covers off of this new Blender adventure in the coming days.

I must also add that some of the team members who are part of "REVERSION" (including the Sound and Audio Team) are also members on this forum.

That's it for now.

Hello everyone!

Okay! So our latest update is a turntable for one of our principal characters. You can find a higher-res version on the movie blog (http://http//

Also, Director's Commentary about how we approached character design and how it relates to some of the story elements in REVERSION.

I think this is also an important topic for people thinking about how to approach animated shorts which, by their very nature, have limited story possibilities.


P.S.: To those of you who were thinking of holding your breath until the trailer gets out, if you are able to hold your breath for a length of 30 days... You can begin doing so now.

I know some people were wondering about how the project came together and what kind of software we used and what roles people played on the production.

Like I mentioned before we weren't really able to document our process properly. So we haven't been able to give very good feedback on questions like that.

However, we've finally managed to piece together a very good set of answers for an interview we recently did for Blender News.

You can head over to the blog ( to check it out.

Thanks. :)

Keep checking back because there could be some interesting updates from now until August and beyond that.

It gives me great pride in announcing that REVERSION has been recognized by the Animation Council of the Philippines for airing as a Category I Finalist at the Animahenasyon 2012 Animation Festival.

Animahenasyon 2012 runs from November 26 - 29 and will be held at the DLS-CSB SDA Campus.
