 "Tears of Steel" the full version ;  1080p and 720 HD available
 "Tears of Steel" is the Blender Foundation's fourth short Open Movie featuring real camera shoot and 3D video effects.
I had a position as a concept-artist and storyboarder in it. My main tool was Krita 2.4 beta in it.

Storyboard :

( quad split sample , full version soon )

More about :

"Tears of Steel" was realized with crowd-funding by users of the open source 3D creation tool Blender. Target was to improve and test a complete open and free pipeline for visual effects in film - and to make a compelling sci-fi film in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

The film itself, and all raw material used for making it, have been released under the Creatieve Commons 3.0 Attribution license. Visit website to find out more about this, or to purchase the 4-DVD box with a lot of extras.

@Brett W. McCoy : Hey Brett ; thanks for the comment. Normally It wasn't originaly planed I would work on Mango , but the original concept-artist selected abandoned the position at the last moment beginning the pre-production. As I was around IRC channel , and open movie , I was a 'rescue' artist :) It was also a lucky opportunity, but with the short time, my participation was really humble.

I don't think I will have the luck to make another open movie project. Maybe on the far future ; the fantasmatic project called 'fruitbasket' where all artist from the past open movie ( getting old ) gather for a movie jam :-)

Et ben pour une humble participation, tu as ta photo sur leurs sites et tu gagnes une participation de plus sur IMDB ^^

Ne trouvant pas du film, j'en profite pour mater celui de Sintel :)
pour les intéréssés :

En tout cas, il y a de quoi être fier de participer à ce genre de film, je l'ai vu en 1080p, il est impressionnant :)

Hummm pourquoi pas un Sintel 2, le retour du dragonou contre godzilla !! :D
