Welcome to the weekly. We are almost one month away from the 1 year production mark. What did we do?
Let's find out, by diving into an exceptionally full weekly folder! Pro tip: check out the individual folder description to spot notes personally written by the artists.
While Andy and Pablo kept churning out final lighting and test renders for the fight sequence, they worked on cloth simulation and the lighting of the opening sequence, respectively.
In the meantime, Kjartan worked on the final act, developing the doctor character, based on one of the henchmen. He did all the character setup heavy-lifting, so it should be ready to go into the animation department.
Speaking of which, Hjalti, Nathan and Nacho have produced several seconds of fine work. On top of that, Nacho has also published his "Henchmen walk cycles collection", a character study of the henchmen, with feedback from Hjalti and Nathan.
Last week we recorded another episode of the Blender Institute Podcast. If you want to hear the team talk about film production and life at the Blender Institute, check it out!
