…It’s Movie Monday: Big Buck Bunny?

Big Buck Bunny

Blender is an open source 3D modeling software, and to help promote the fact that it is a suitable environment for professional level 3D animation, Blender created an animated short called Big Buck Bunny.

Big Buck Bunny is a big rabbit with an even bigger heart, but when three rodents start to harass him, something snaps, and he enacts his revenge in a typically cartoonish fashion:

If you’d like to see how they did it, then check out the Big Buck Bunny website, where you can download the source files for the movie and more.

…Jason Freeny’s work is amazing?

Jason Freeny

Remember Jason Freeny’s “Pneumatic Anatomica”?

Well he’s back, and this time, his art dives into the insides of a gummy bear and a Dunny, in pieces he calls “Immaculate Confection” and “Visible Vinyl”.

I emailed Jason to find out a little bit more about his work, and asked him, “What inspires you to create these amazing pieces of art?”

He replied:

    You pose a question I have been asked before and one that is not easily answered. I could give you a long dribbling artist statement on all the symbolism and meaning I am trying to portray to make the world a better place but the simple fact is, these pieces are mostly a combination of my interests, 3D modeling, pop culture, illustration, surrealism, cartoons and a taste for the off center. Ultimately I create these images for me to enjoy as well as my 5 year old son. I also enjoy releasing them into the wild (internet) and see the reactions people have to them. I am thrilled that people enjoy them and that keeps me making more. I actually get a bit down when they don’t go over well, but that makes me try harder the next time. Its become a challenge for me create work that tickles the small piece of the brain that enjoys these twisted guilty pleasures.

Sounds like one down to earth dude!

Who knew the inanimate could be so interesting?
