How it started
As a follow-up to the successful project Orange’s “Elephants Dream”, the Blender Foundation initiated another open movie project. Again a small team (7) of the best 3D artists and developers in the Blender community have been invited to come together to work in Amsterdam from October 2007 until April 2008 on completing a short 3D animation movie. The team members will get a great studio facility and housing in Amsterdam, all travel costs reimbursed, and a fee sufficient to cover all expenses during the period.
The creative concept of “Peach” was completely different as for “Orange”. This time it is “funny and furry”!
The Blender Foundation and Blender community have been the main financiers for Peach. As for the previous open movie, a pre-sale campaign to purchase the DVD set in advance will be organized.
Additional support from sponsors and subsidy funds has been realized as well.
Peach also was the first Open Project hosted by the new Blender Institute in Amsterdam. This will make the project more independent, without much involvement of production partners, and also will ensure continuity.
This Open movie project had as main targets:
- Developing tools in Blender for editing and rendering hair, fur or grass
- Improve character animation tools for cartoonish motion and deformation
- Test Blender with giant outdoor environments, with large grassy fields and many trees with leaves
- Further validate Blender as a professional animation creation suite
- Create a great and good looking animation short, licensed freely as open content
- Provide content for other artists to learn from or to re-use, including documentation and tutorials
And of course: Have lots of fun!
