At the end of last month, we published our last small production, a very short movie celebrating the new year. Today, we just released all the source files on our framagit. Don’t hesitate to download and use these files on your own projects ! Everything is CC-BY-SA. https://framagit.org/rgba/happy2017 What is bundled in the sources ? We’ve tried to share all the necessary files while respecting licenses from assets used during production. Regarding Blender files, all production and pre-production files are availables. File structure and organisation are done accordingly to the process described in this post. On the post-production side, we extensively used Natron to test it in a real example […]
Hi all, After a quite busy January month, we finally have time to wish you the best for 2017.
Hello, For our short movie, we had setup a pipeline to work efficiently with a remote team of 6, reducing the need of handling conflicts of modified files. First, here is a excerpt of our production tree view : Everything is version controlled by a svn server, which has the benefit to handle “locks” to protect currently modified files by someone. To avoid the use of “locks” to often on frequently used files, every assets (scene, props, characters, etc…) is created in its own file. Then everything is regrouped in global scenes (sceneA, sceneB, … in our example) with “links”. A “link” create a reference of a source so that […]

Hello everyone, As we mention it in our previous article, we are working on an animated short movie with the mysterious code name “Spider”. This short is the occasion for us to work together on a large-scale project as a showcase for our collective. Origin of the project The idea of making a short movie has run through our mind during many month without a satisfying story. The difficulty was both on the storyline and technical constraints. Indeed, we knew that none of us would have much time to give to the realization and we shouldn’t be stuck in a too ambitious project. So Chloé has found us a little […]
Hello there! We are pleased to share with the community our (very) animated short called ‘The Encounter’. The Encounter is the story of a small baby spider who is wandering around when he meets a strange encounter on the table… This short was mainly a general test to validate our pipeline in our newly created studio. It is part of a bigger project, a 3 minutes animated short, currently in production. We will soon post some more info about it in this very blog, stay tuned! The idea behind this very short came from Julien, who wanted to validate the rig he has created for our baby spider and familiarise […]
