Using Blender to make failed aircraft ideas fly

C. Sundiata Cowels, CTS

Saturday 25 October Theater 30

During this session I will talk about how I utilized blender 3d for the first time to craft the story of a unique aircraft proposal that never flew and earned an Award of Distinction in Special Effects/Animation for my effort (2014 Videographer Awards). I will examine three scenes from my documentary "Designed For Battle: VTOL Model 49 and the AAFSS Program", examining my work process of what I had hoped to achieve and what actually was produced. The goal of this session is to encourage first time blender users to dream big and tell stories with their work. So, if you are beginner or intermediate blender user, are an aviation enthusiast, or all of the above, this talk session will be of interest to you.
