Blender 2.48 released!

October 16, 2008

Blender 2.48 is released! Blender is an excellent 3D modeling, UV mapping, rigging, animating, and rendering program that is open source and completely free!

Check out the BlenderNation article about the new version of Blender!

Download Blender 2.48 now!

NOTE: This version of Blender has two dependencies. The installer will let you know what they are. Downloading and installing these dependencies (needed third-party apps that help create the need environment for the program to run) is not that hard to figure out.

God bless and looking forward to the days ahead! It’s really late, so I better hit the hay.

…trying to make a game in Blender… I have had a desire to make games for a long time… I abandoned that desire thinking gaming wasn’t good. However, if I am careful with my time, I would still love to create some computer games.

Hopefully the Minosa Films group will rehearse (run through the script of) “Is This Love?” this Sunday after church. Currently I plan to rehearse the film and prepare it as needed for production. It is very tempting to just say “Hey, who cares, let’s film now” when the script is not film-worthy yet. Like a ship that is not prepared for the ocean, our film will sink. So, we must prepare.

Tentative plan:

  • Brief script rehearsals (group)
  • Find location – if current location will not work (banor, others)
  • Pray about it

When script has gone through revisions and is film-worthy, we will then commence a 2 day schedule:

  1. Day 1: Take cast and crew to location.  Walk through scenes and familiarize the actors and crew with the location: when and where events take place in the film
  2. Day 2: Shoot film

By the time the production is film-worthy and ready to shoot, we will have gone through a number of brief rehearsals, script revisions, blocking, acting emotions, etc., so that when we film we are ready, with no wrinkles or big problems to iron out on location (hopefully.)

Well, God bless and best wishes,

May you be guided on the road ahead,
And may we all find what we are looking for,

Never give up,

Not sure what’s ahead

August 25, 2008

As the days pass by and progress is made in various areas, one may wonder what happened to Minosa Films – like, where are the films?!

Well, I suppose everything has a journey.  And each journey has it’s pilgrims, and once in a while, you run across a hero.  Well, I am a pilgrim.  And I need to do my part, and my part is not only the technical side of making sure we have a camcorder that will work, but scripts to make movies from.  So, I need to write scripts.  We have one script for a film titled “Is This Love?”, and I plan to make revisions upon it (basically add to/and or rewrite it.)  I think it would be wise to have more than one script on hand, so, I need to write! 😉

Recently I found out about a neat project called Morevna Project.  Check it out here: morevnaproject.org.  I am considering contributing to it.  From the website:

The main goal of Morevna Project is creation of full-lengthened anime movie, utilizing Open Source software only.

Other goals:

  • Promotion of Open Source software and its ideology.
  • Testing and improving existing Open Source products by giving appropriated feedback to developers and community.
  • Validate Open Source tools as suitable for creation of professional good-looking animation.
  • Provide content for other artists to learn from or to re-use, including documentation and tutorials

Main production tools:

Also, check out this neat song by Staffan Svahn, called Red Hills.

And now back to what I need to do.  God bless!

…we will make it

August 13, 2008

Work has been done towards filming “Is This Love?”, but due to a location impasse (the location is currently set, but there are issues,) and integral script issues, it may not be soon.

Good news on that, though: longlifejas helped me find the location for “Is This Love?”.  I have contacted a theater actor and he may help us with the film.  So, things are moving foward in a way, but the film may drastically change at any minute.

The first episode of a short film some friends and I worked on I hope get edited sometime.  I also plan to edit the interview with Dr. Narendra Singh and get that online!  Whew.

I was talking to a friend, and I hope to start my own sort of animated journey like Rustboy, and just finished my first sketch for it tonight.

Thanks for listening,

God bless…
