Blending for feature films and commercials at PitchiPoy

Tamir Lousky

Saturday 26 October Theater 30

PitchiPoy Animation Productions is the oldest animation house in Israel. At the beginning of 2011, we completely migrated to Blender and now use it for all 3D production tasks (modeling, texturing, shading, lighting, rendering, compositing, tracking, simulations). This presentation will summarize the techniques, challenges and outcomes of two of our biggest projects in 2013: a feature animation film called "Baldy Heights" (which is still in development) and a high profile commercial for the Coca Cola company which included VFX and tracking. It will also discuss some of the scripts we developed for facilitating our animation tasks.
