A poetic fantasy film

Spring is the first Blender Open Movie directed and written by¬†Andy Goralczyk. It’s a poetic short film about a mountain spirit and her little dog. Together they bring spring to the valleys after a long and dark winter in the mountains. The film’s art direction is in the hands of David Revoy – who worked on three of our short films as concept artist before.

The 7 minutes film will be produced by the studio of Blender Institute in Amsterdam. Production time is predicted to be 8-9 months, aligning the film with work on Blender 2.8.
