I am the BLENDER
Blender is an integrated suite of tools
enabling the creation of a broad range of 3D
content with the singular benefits of
cross-platform interoperability and an
incredibly small download file size - 8.11
It is the most popular Open Source 3D
graphics application in the world, and is
one of the most downloaded .(Roncarelli Report)
Blender in Spiderman 2 ???
“As an animatic artist I'm most often hired early on
in the pre-production stages of a movie. The
director usually meets with a storyboard artist and
me to discuss how a particular scene should play.
The storyboards are drawn and scanned. I
digitally cut the drawings into foreground, middle-
ground and background layers and animate them
to the director's instructions, including sound
effects, dialog, music, and I include 3d elements
and animation as the action in the scene warrants.
The end result is a mini-movie - or
quot;animaticquot; - that resembles an animated version of
the scene that has yet to be filmed.”
