A SPECIAL MIX OF CREATIVITY AND 3D TECHNOLOGY
Blender is a unique organisation, with a mix of creativity and 3D technology at its core. With a goal to produce cutting-edge content and tools and share them with the worldwide community of makers, creators and developers, they have been collaborating with Mimaki in the realisation of character and environment prints as a way to support the visual development process for animated films. The flexibility and power of this printing system allowing Blender to visualise an environment in a novel way, and to physically be immersed in it.
One of their first collaborations with Mimaki involved the 3D creation of Agent 327: Operation Barbershop, an animation character and mood study for a feature film developed at Blender Animation Studio.
Spring is the story of a shepherd girl and her dog, who faces ancient spirits in order to continue the cycle of life. This poetic and visually stunning short film was written and directed by Andy Goralczyk, inspired by his childhood in the mountains of Germany.
