Eye candy: Caminandes: Gran Dillama

Pity the star of Pablo Vazquez’s Caminandes animated shorts. In his first outing, he had a spot of bother crossing a road. And now someone has placed an electric fence between the hapless llama and the bush of his dreams.

Created entirely in Blender and other open-source software
The latest of the Blender Institute’s series of ‘open movies’, Caminandes: Gran Dillama moves away from the live-action visual effects of Tears of Steel to the classic cartoon work of shorts like Big Buck Bunny.

Inspired by Chuck Jones animations, Gran Dillama was created by a team of eight, helmed by Vazquez, and including open movie veterans Andy Goralczyk and composer Jan Morgenstern.

Support the project by buying the USB card
Like all of the other open movies, the assets used to create the short will be released under a Creative Commons licence, alongside a series of tutorials explaining technical and artistic aspects of the project.

Although the assets will be available for free, if you want to support the project, there’s still time to order the files on a limited-edition USB card, price €27.50 (around $37).
